|Opportunity for College Admission and Full Four-Year Scholarships through QuestBridge
The QuestBridge National College Match helps outstanding low-income high school seniors to gain admission and full four-year scholarships to some of the nation’s leading colleges. If you are a student who has achieved academic excellence in the face of economic challenges, we encourage you to apply at www.questbridge.org.
QuestBridge works with selective colleges that are actively seeking high-achieving students regardless of family income. You may be concerned about tuition costs, but top-ranked colleges offer generous financial aid packages that cover 100% of demonstrated financial need, making them very affordable for students from low-income backgrounds.
Last year, more than 1,000 QuestBridge applicants were admitted to our partner colleges with generous financial aid worth over $100 million. 260 of these students received College Match scholarships covering the following costs:
Most QuestBridge partner colleges also include the cost of books and travel in their scholarship packages and automatically renew the scholarship for all four years of college. All College Match scholarships are loan-free.
Our 26 partners include many of the nation’s top-ranked universities and liberal arts colleges:
The QuestBridge National College Match application is designed to enable high-achieving low-income students to highlight their strengths and the obstacles they have overcome. The application is available free of charge on the QuestBridge website, www.questbridge.org, and is due on September 30, 2009.
QuestBridge is pleased to offer Quest for Excellence Awards as a complement to the National College Match. These awards include laptop computers, all-expense-paid visits to QuestBridge partner colleges, and career mentoring opportunities (e.g., with the Wall Street Journal and the consulting firm McKinsey & Company). Please visit www.questbridge.org for more information.
QuestBridge is a 501(c)(3) non-profit program. Our organization has worked since 1994 to connect outstanding students with college admissions, scholarships, and other educational opportunities.
