Bridge candidates are nominated for the program by the Admissions Office following a review of the application materials. Students cannot apply for BSP, but they are encouraged to contact Georgia College Admissions if the Bridge Scholars Program is of interest to them.
Once a student has been nominated for BSP they must then interview for a competitive spot in the program. Interviews for the 2020-2021 Bridge Scholars Program will begin in mid-January and run through early March. Please see your nomination letter for instructions on how to sign up for your interview. Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis following each interview date until the program is full, thus we encourage students to sign up for the earliest interview date available. Approximately 450 students will be nominated to BSP, and enrollment is limited to approximately 125 students. Students are notified of their admission status within two weeks of the interview. Decisions are final and not subject to appeal.
If a student is offered admission they must be one of the first 125 students to submit their $300 BSP fee* in order to secure placement within the program. More students will be offered placement in BSP than spaces are available, thus it is imperative that payment is made as quickly as possible. Because space is very limited, we cannot guarantee you a space in the program until this fee has been paid.
As of March 23, 2020, the Bridge Scholars Program for 2020-2021 is full. Please call Dr. Hali Sofala-Jones, Bridge Scholars Program Coordinator, at (478) 445-6293 if you would like to be placed on our waitlist.
