The Admissions Process

Admission to the Fullbridge Programs is limited and highly selective, so we recommend that you apply early. If you’re dedicated to the advancement of your future through an immersive and rigorous program that will build your skills, confidence, and self-awareness—apply now!

All applications are carefully reviewed by our admissions team. Finalists selected for the XBA programs may be invited to participate in a Skype interview, a critical part of the Fullbridge Admissions process. We recommend that you treat this interview as a job interview. Be prepared to answer questions about why Fullbridge is the right fit for you, how your personal and professional experiences make you a good candidate for the program and what your short- and long-term goals are.

The Fullbridge Program is selective and space is limited. Acceptance is based on an overall review of your application. We consider all aspects of a candidate, including academic performance, professional experience, campus and community activities, leadership and teamwork initiatives, and other relevant experiences.

Requirements for Participation

Participants are required to bring their own computers for use throughout the duration of the program. Microsoft Office must be installed. There are no additional materials required to participate in the Fullbridge Program.

We’re here to offer you support and guidance throughout the application process. Feel free to call us at 1-888-945-5505 or email with any questions.

“Being able to come back to KrashPad at the end of the day really allows for a fuller experience. The Fullbridge program I am enrolled in features undergraduates so everyday it is nice to go back to people of all ages and experience levels to get their perspective.”

Fullbridge Programs range in price from $1,500 to $5,750. Please check our programs page for current offerings.

Looking for additional ways to make Fullbridge a possibility this summer? We are pleased to announce that through its recent certification of Fullbridge, The Skill Fund will now make available to our participants affordable ways to cover tuition for the program. Visit to learn more.


Fullbridge offers a very  limited number of partial scholarships via partner organizations (including colleges and universities, scholarship organizations, foundations and individuals) who have determined need-based eligibility. These scholarships are typically below $1,000 per student.

Applicants must apply for a scholarship directly from the application portal after submitting their application to a given program—and before holding an admissions interview. Scholarship applicants are required to provide basic household income information in order to be considered for an award.

Students who need funding should also consider looking to their schools for support. Career Services and Alumni Offices, or student clubs often have funds available to help make The Fullbridge Program a viable option. Other students consider personal or private loans. Additionally, many community foundations have funds to assist with college success and work-place readiness for which Fullbridge participation would qualify.
