Quest Bridge National College Match:

Through National College Match, high achieving, low income students can receive full four-year scholarships to the nation’s best colleges., including Stanford, Yale, MIT, Amherst, and Duke.  All of QuestBridge’s 39 college partners are committed to making college affordable, and they partner with QuestBridge to find outstanding students to join their campus communities.

They are looking for high school seniors who have shown outstanding academic ability despite financial challenges.


In order to be eligible to apply to the National College Match in the fall of 2017, applicants must graduate from high school during or before the summer of 2018 and plan to enroll as a freshman in college in the fall of 2018.

The QuestBridge National College Match is open to all:

  • U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents or
  • Students, regardless of citizenship, currently attending high school in the United States.

Additional Citizenship Requirements

Important considerations for students who are not U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents, but are attending high school in the United States: Only some of our colleges will consider non-U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents for admission and full scholarships through the College Match. 

Academic Achievement

We seek students who have demonstrated a level of academic achievement that meets or exceeds the admissions standards of our colleges. 

Financial Qualifications 

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.
