It’s time to get outside.
The 2022 application process is now open for the second cohort of the Bridge Adventure Program.
Membership in the Bridge Adventure Program is open to undergraduate students of all majors at Texas Tech University, including incoming freshmen with an undeclared major. Students who would like to apply must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 hours and be in good academic standing throughout the duration of the program. Students must be able to complete their two-year cohort experience in the Bridge Adventure program prior to graduating with an undergraduate degree from Texas Tech University. Bridge Adventure is a federally funded program, therefore participation comes at no cost to the students, other than a commitment of their time.
Each Bridge Adventure cohort will accept a total of 8-12 students into the program. Applications will be accepted throughout the summer of 2021 with the application review process beginning May 15. The application includes basic demographic information and two essay questions.
Interviews & Selection
Following the application deadline, applicants will go through two rounds of consideration. The first round will evaluate the completeness of each application. Only completed and correctly submitted applications received by the application deadline will be considered for acceptance into the Bridge Adventure program. The second round of the selection process will include interviews (face-to-face or Zoom) between members of the Bridge Adventure team and selected applicants. Applicants who advance to the interview process will receive an email from the Bridge Adventure Program Director with instructions on how to sign up for a 20-minute interview time. Applicants should be prepared to discuss their leadership and career goals during the interview.
Diversity & Inclusion
Bridge Adventure will connect students with campus resources and create novel experiential learning opportunities while fostering diversity and inclusion through transformative learning.

Bridge Adventure will increase retention rates among its students through experiential learning activities that include outdoor adventure excursions, mentored research, and alternative service breaks – all strengthened by team planning and reflection activities.
