The College Prep Scholars Program is open to high school juniors, granting awards and diverse opportunities that prepare high-achieving, low-income students for the QuestBridge National College Match, as well as the college admissions process. Some of those awards MAY include: a full scholarship to a college summer program, Quest for Excellence Awards including $1,000 for a new laptop, an invitation to a QuestBridge National College Admissions Conference, personalized feedback on their college essay, specialized guidance and resources for the college application process or access to an online community of peers who are also applying to top colleges.
Students are evaluated based on the merit of their entire application. Grades, curriculum, available standardized test scores, financial need and other socioeconomic factors, teacher recommendations and essay responses are the most heavily weighed factors.
