The QuestBridge National College Match Scholarship program is a college and scholarship application process that helps outstanding low-income high school seniors gain admission and full four-year scholarships to the nation’s most selective colleges. QuestBridge accomplishes this by partnering with these schools to identify and support students who otherwise may not apply to leading colleges.
Applicants must submit their transcripts, test scores, and letters of recommendation while ranking the colleges of their choice to be considered for early admission and a full college scholarship.
College Match Scholarships, which are provided by participating colleges, cover the full cost of tuition, room and board, are loan-free, and require no parental contribution.
