CCCS College Transfer Information
Bridge to HBCU

Reisher Bridge Scholars Program
The Reisher Bridge Scholarship links The Denver Foundation’s Reisher Scholars Program and the Bridge to Bachelor’s Degree program to create a seamless and structured pathway for high achieving transfer students from low-income backgrounds.
CCCS students do not need to apply for the Reisher Bridge Scholarship; instead, the Foundation for Colorado Community Colleges awards qualifying students enrolled full-time through the Bridge to Bachelor’s Degree program. Scholars must demonstrate financial need and have 30 credits or fewer remaining in their associate degree pathway.
