Additionally, students receive a $700 stipend for successful program participation, with an opportunity to receive an additional academic achievement stipend of up to $900, based on academic performance during the program. Additionally, students will participate in: tutoring sessions; career counseling; seminars; PowerPoint and competitive poster preparation; mentoring support, competitive business training and social activities to promote networking. Each student works on a business - related concept project during the program. A concluding conference highlights the accomplishments of the Bridge students and participants receive certificates of participation and awards for outstanding projects.
