Summer Bridge

Student Success Initiatives’s Summer Bridge Scholars are students who are awarded a scholarship to attend the Freshman Edge Summer Program, a 6-week program designed to provide incoming UCI students an opportunity to make the best possible academic and social transition to UCI. Students earn UCI credit and get a head start working towards their degree while meeting other new students, staff and faculty. After the summer, Scholars receive additional benefits including personalized guidance from a professional staff member, peer mentoring, priority enrollment, tutoring scholarships, skill-building workshops, and community-building opportunities.
