Please make sure to review the application process outlined below carefully. Thank you for your interest.
The Application Process (2022)
To be considered for the UNC Charlotte Provost's Scholarship for BRIDGES, you must first apply for BRIDGES at the Chapel Hill level. UNC Charlotte candidates from Academic Affairs who are selected at the Chapel Hill level to attend BRIDGES will be eligible for the UNC Charlotte Provost's Scholarship.
*This is a change to the former UNC Charlotte Provost’s Scholarship process. Please read the details below carefully.
Speak with your department head or manager about financial support for attending the BRIDGES program.
Officially apply for BRIDGES through the BRIDGES Executive Committee in Chapel Hill. The BRIDGES program application must be received by May 20, 2022. The UNC Chapel Hill BRIDGES Executive Committee then selects a group of BRIDGES participants from Colleges and Universities across North Carolina by June 15, 2022.
If you are selected to attend BRIDGES, alert your department head or manager and request funding to support your participation in the program.
For those in the Division of Academic Affairs, if you do not have funding support or are not sure if you will have funding, the next step is to apply for consideration for the UNC Charlotte Provost's Scholarship for BRIDGES. Applications to the UNC Charlotte Provost's Scholarship for BRIDGES Selection Committee are due by June 23, 2022.
Notes on Selection:
The Provost has committed to sponsoring at least one employee annually from Academic Affairs. The committee will forward one choice from Academic Affairs to the Provost’s office for funding.
The committee will also notify other University divisions of strong applicants and request these units support their formal application to the UNC Chapel Hill BRIDGES Executive Committee.
