Full college scholarships for high-achieving, low-income students

High-achieving students should have the chance to attend one of the country’s best colleges, regardless of their family’s financial situation.

That’s the principle behind the QuestBridge National College Match program, which seeks to send excellent students from low-income homes to elite colleges. Students choose their top schools from among more than 30 highly respected universities, including Amherst, Dartmouth, Brown, Emory, MIT, Princeton and Stanford. The schools review the applicants, and if a match is made, the student will receive a full scholarship. If a match isn’t made, the student will still be considered by all participating universities and may receive significant financial aid.

The application deadline is Sept. 26, 2014, and the application process is pretty involved, so don’t wait if this program is a fit for a high-school senior you know.
