Scholarships to elite colleges for low-income, high-achieving students

QuestBridgeLow-income students often don’t apply to our nation’s elite colleges, believing those prestigious campuses are out of their reach because of their families’ finances.

QuestBridge aims to change that with its National College Match program, which is now accepting applications from rising high-school seniors.

Students choose their top schools from three dozen highly respected universities, including Amherst, Dartmouth, Brown, Emory, MIT, Princeton and Stanford. The schools review the applicants, and if they want to admit a student who selected them, the student will receive a full scholarship to their school. If a match isn’t made with the applicant’s top choices, the student will still be considered by all participating universities and may receive significant financial aid.

The application deadline is Sept. 28, 2015. The application is extensive, requiring transcripts, letters of recommendation, and financial records, so you’ll want to get started now.
