We are excited for you to participate in Miami University's 2021 Bridges Program.

You were selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants and should be very proud. Your participation in the Bridges Program will allow you the opportunity to meet current students, learn about your academic area of interest, experience campus life, and interact with faculty and staff. We are excited to showcase the many opportunities available to you at Miami.


Bridges Program Scholarship

Students who complete the Bridges Program, apply, are accepted, and enroll on the Oxford campus for Fall 2020 will be eligible to receive the Bridges Program scholarship. Last year, Bridges scholarship values ranged from $2,500 to $5,000 annually. Students can "stack" this scholarship with other Miami awards, which means multiple scholarships can be used for student expenses. In fact, most Bridges participants receive multiple awards, for total values ranging from half to full tuition.
