Questbridge: MUST APPLY JUNIOR YEAR QuestBridge is a non-profit program that helps high-achieving, low-income students gain admission and scholarships to 39 of the country’s top-ranked colleges. QuestBridge does this by partnering with these schools to identify and support students who otherwise may not apply to leading colleges. We administer a unique application that focuses on the achievements and academic success of students who face economic challenges, and help to guide applicants through the college admissions process. Our college partners ultimately decide which students to admit, and they provide the scholarships, not QuestBridge. ELIGIBILITY
We seek students who have demonstrated a level of academic achievement that meets or exceeds the admissions standards of our colleges. (TOP % OF CLASS, SAT or PSAT scores > 1270)
Finalists typically come from households earning less than $65,000 annually for a family of four, and often less. This is not a strict cut-off and we encourage students who feel they have faced significant financial hardship to review these financial details carefully to see if they may qualify.
Personal Circumstance- Parents' level of education: 71% of Finalists are among the first generation in their family to attend a U.S. four-year college.
Extenuating circumstances: If students have an unusual level of responsibility, such as part-time jobs to help their parents pay the bills, or caring for siblings if their parents are absent or at work.
