Help students and recent graduates gain experience while allowing your business to benefit from their unique talents and perspectives.

College graduation is a major milestone, a new beginning.

But the 2020 job market is anything but predictable. Internships rescinded, hiring freezes and lack of job opportunities are the reality for many of our students and recent grads.

Unprecedented times call for unprecedented actions. What support can you offer to KU students and recent graduates in the midst of this new normal?

Introducing Bridges.

KU’s marketplace for connecting students and recent grads to real-world, experiential projects that benefit businesses.

The Bridges marketplace is fueled by individuals like you – fellow alumni, families, and businesses. In minutes, you can create short-term, virtual projects for students and alumni to help them launch their careers.
