Preparing You for Academic and Career Success
About the Career Pathways Bridge Program
The NYU SPS Career Pathways Bridge Program increases access and pathways into NYU SPS degree programs and family-sustaining careers by combining academics with paid work experiences. Career Pathways Bridge Fellows earn two-year scholarships for their Fall Bridge semester and matriculation into the associate degree program offered by the School’s Division of Applied Undergraduate Studies (DAUS), which begins the following Spring.
The first cohort of Career Pathways Bridge Fellows launched in August 2022, with five students—Kevin Danso, Emily Jimenez, Joshua Richards, Leylani Rivera, and James Walrond—all from high schools across the Bronx that focus on braiding work-based learning experiences into academic pathways. Learn more about the fellows through their video profiles.
