QuestBridge designs and builds programs for talented low-income students to access and navigate exceptional educational and life opportunities by recruiting, developing, and supporting motivated low-income students – beginning in high school through college to their first job – to be successful at America's best colleges, graduate schools, and companies.


The QuestBridge National College Match is a college and scholarship application process that helps outstanding low-income high school seniors gain admission and full four-year scholarships to the nation's most selective colleges.

College Match Scholarships, which are provided by participating colleges, cover the full cost of tuition, room and board, are loan-free, and require no parental contribution.

If you are a student who has achieved academic excellence in the face of economic challenges, we encourage you to apply. QuestBridge's college partners are committed to making college affordable for all students — regardless of financial background — and offer generous financial aid packages that cover 100% of demonstrated financial need.

The 2017 National College Match application will open in summer 2017.
