This inaugural program, BLOOM Bridge, empowers female-identifying Latinas from low-income households to participate in a Bridge program for students who may be interested in majoring in a business program, a business career, or transferring into a business program at a four-year college or university. 

BLOOM students will automatically be enrolled in the Female Leadership and Mentoring Program (LEAD) at STCC, to enhance their academic and career success in the Business Career or Transfer programs.

Grant funding from KPMG’s Reaching New Heights Program will be used to provide career exploration, peer mentoring, tutoring, academic support, and tuition for two one-credit Business courses. Students will also gain access to career networking and mentoring advice from leaders in accounting, marketing, management, and entrepreneurship fields.

By removing the barrier of cost for underrepresented students, STCC seeks to strengthen partnerships and enhance existing diversity pipelines with local high schools. 

If you are interested in enrolling yourself in the BLOOM program or would like to learn more about how you can partner with us, please complete this interest form and we will contact you!
