Baltimore City Community College.

Baltimore-based BridgeEdu is working with Baltimore City Community College on a program that helps recent graduates from city schools as they transition to college life.

According to a news release, the edtech venture’s service is part of the inaugural Mayor’s Scholars program, which accepted 500 students who can enter an associate’s degree or workforce development program tuition-free. Students who receive their associate’s degree at BCCC can then finish a four-year program at Coppin State University for free.

“Through the Mayor’s Scholars Program, we are enabling this current generation of high school graduates to achieve their potential without the financial burden that so often proves an insurmountable obstacle to higher education and the opportunities it makes possible,” Mayor Catherine Pugh said in a statement.

BridgeEdu uses in-person as well as tech-enabled approaches to help students as they transition to college, and will be part of a Summer Bridge program at BCCC. Students will receive a stipend for five weeks of the Summer Bridge program.
