Bridge to Success Program Covering More Students Than Anticipated

September 19th, 2008

Great news from the Gazette Times this morning. OSU’s Bridge to Success Program is covering more students than anticipated at inception.

More students are taking advantage of Oregon State University’s “Bridge to Success� program than its creators expected. Announced last spring to begin with this fall’s term, the program was expected to cover fees and tuition for about 10 percent of its Oregon students, or about 1,500 people.

OSU officials, however, have approved awards for some 2,400 students, about half of whom have income levels that qualify them for assistance with books and supplies.

“The Campaign for OSU is doing well, and it has helped us with increased gift aid we can use,� said Kate Peterson, assistant provost for enrollment management and one of the creators of the Bridge to Success program.

This is outstanding news! We at the Office of Admissions are thrilled to see more Oregonians with the greatest need getting help. Big credit goes to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships for creating and managing the Bridge to Success and to the fundraisers with the Campaign for OSU for bringing in more and more resources!!
