Bridge at Colorado Mesa University

Denver-based ESL pathway provider, Bridge®, will host two cohorts of Mexican students as part of the Proyecta 100,000 scholarship program. The scholarship recipients will study English language and American culture at Bridge’s on-campus language center at Colorado Mesa University this summer and fall.

The first group of students arrived last week and have hit the ground running as they participate in an action- packed program. Students study English for five hours per day and then engage in various excursions and cultural activities such as sports events, outdoor activities, and interacting with local residents.

“Overall, my experience has been really good. I love it here. It is amazing and completely different from what I am used to”, said Paulina Gonzalez, a student at the Universidad Politécnica Del Valle De Toluca. A fellow classmate, Jesiel Martinez, further commented, “So far I feel very excited about this place. It is very beautiful. I am happy to be focusing on my English, and I hope to learn to speak more quickly.”

Students studying English at Bridge at Colorado Mesa University Proyecta 100,000 complements the President Obama’s 100,000 Strong in the Americas initiative, and came out of the creation of the U.S.- Mexico Bilateral Forum on Higher Education, Innovation and Research (FOBESSI) in May of 2013. One goal of Proyecta 100,000 is to increase student mobility between the two countries, with the aim of sending 100,000 Mexican students to the U.S., and 50,000 American students to Mexico by the year 2018.
