About The Puente Project
The goal of the Puente Community College Program is to increase the number of educationally underserved students who transfer to four-year colleges and universities, earn degrees, and return to the community as leaders and mentors to future generations. Now in its seventeenth year, the COS Puente Project is still making the “bridge” a reality for students.
Puente (Spanish for “bridge”) is a national award-winning transfer-readiness program helping thousands of students attain college success.
All proceeds benefit Puente Student Scholarships.
