18 students from IDEA’s Class of 2023 have been selected as finalists for the QuestBridge National College Match Program. Our students are among 5,613 high school seniors nationwide selected this year from over 17,900 applications! This year, QuestBridge’s 48 college partners matched with 1,755 Finalists, who are recognized as Match Scholarship Recipients. This is the highest number of Match Scholarship Recipients to-date for QuestBridge.
Students were selected based on their academic achievement, financial qualifications, and personal character. The majority of this year’s Match Scholarship Recipients (80%) are among the first generation in their families to attend a four-year college in the United States.
Congratulations to all our selected finalists! The IDEA Team & Family is so proud of you. We cannot wait to find out if you matched!
