Quest Bridge

The 2013 National College Match Program connects low income high school seniors with admission to FULL four year scholarships to their partner colleges. We are talking FULL tuition-you do not have to pay anything!!!

Most of their recipients fall under the top 5% of their class and have a household income of $60,000 and under.

This is how it works:
1. Students submit a Quest Bridge application online by SEPTEMBER 27. It is FREE to apply.
2. QuestBridge selects finalists and forwards their applications to partner colleges
3. QuestBridge matches finalists based on mutual preferences. Admission and scholarship notifications are issued at the beginning of December.
4. Finalists who are not marched can apply free of charge to partner colleges through the QuestBridge Regular Decision Process.

The following are some partner colleges that will consider undocumented students (i.e. students who live in the U.S. and do not have a current visa) for the full College Match scholarship: Brown, Grinnell, Pomona, Swarthmore, University of Chicago, Washington & Lee, Williams, and Yale.

Students must demonstrate high academic excellence and a need for financial assistance and the desire to apply to one of the thirty three partner schools. Applicants must write three essays and several short answer questions, along with three recommendation letters.
