QuestBridge takes all of the following factors into account when evaluating an application for the National College Match:

  1. Academic Achievement
  2. Financial Qualifications
  3. Personal Circumstances

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Applicants must graduate from high school during or before the summer of 2022 and plan to enroll as a freshman in college in the fall of 2022
  • Open to all U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents OR students, regardless of citizenship, currently attending high school in the United States.
  • We seek students who have demonstrated a level of academic achievement that meets or exceeds the admissions standards of our colleges.
  • Finalists typically come from households earning less than $65,000 annually for a typical family of four and have minimal assets.

Renewable: Yes
Open to DREAMers: Yes, however 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 partner colleges will consider non-U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents for admission and full scholarships through the College Match. Most of our partner colleges use federal and state funds to finance a portion of the scholarships, and these funds are only available for U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents. Students who are not U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents can still use the QuestBridge application, be chosen as QuestBridge finalists, and participate in the Regular Decision process.
