Empowering Youth Through Education

Scholar Bridge Network

THE SCHOLAR BRIDGE NETWORK is a diverse and active group of professionals, entrepreneurs, executives, mentors, and organizations dedicated to the post-graduation development and success of Fulfillment Fund Scholars – many of whom will be the first in their family to graduate from college. 

The Scholar Bridge Network's mission is to:

  • Build and actively engage a network of professionals that can assist and guide our Scholars as they navigate the path college to career.  Our Scholar Bridge Network offers practical career advice and connections.
  • Generate College-to-Career programs and enrichment events focused on career guidance, internship and job opportunities, professional skills development, and networking activities for Fulfillment Fund Scholars in their junior and senior years.
  • Inspire Fulfillment Fund Scholars to remain invested in the cause of the Fulfillment Fund, stay engaged with Fulfillment Fund students and alumni, and become the next generation of the Scholar Bridge leaders, volunteers, and supporters.
