Building Roads to Intellectual Diversity and Great Education (B.R.I.D.G.E.) is an intensive, four-week residential academic enrichment and leadership program that brings together first-generation college-bound, low-income or African-American or Latino students from the Chicagoland area who are interested in preparing for admission to college.


The two-year summer program prepares Christian high school students for college through a curriculum that fosters their intellectual, leadership and spiritual growth. Best of all, the entire program is free of charge for all participants, and completing it guarantees a scholarship to Wheaton College.
