One of the colleges at Colorado State University is exploring a summer bridge program for high school juniors to raise awareness of careers while increasing access to, and diversity within, the college and the field.
They are seeking a value add component, such as course credit or another financial incentive that will allow the participants to decrease time to graduation. One idea being explored is to offer a tuition discount/scholarship which students can apply to CSU after participation in the program.
I am curious if anyone has experience with either of these types of incentives (credit for HS students or a scholarship to be applied later). Also, if you have additional incentive ideas please share.
