Welcome, educators! We are a nationally recognized nonprofit organization that connects top students from low-income backgrounds with opportunities at top colleges.

What we do

The QuestBridge path to college begins with the College Prep Scholars Program, which helps outstanding high school juniors become strong applicants to selective colleges.  In senior year, high-achieving, low-income high school seniors can apply for the National College Match, an admissions process that connects top students with admissions and full four-year scholarships or generous financial aid at QuestBridge’s college partners.

Students admitted to a college partner through the National College Match become QuestBridge Scholars, and join a community of over 7,000 scholars on college partner campuses. The QuestBridge Scholars Network provides them with access to further academic, professional, leadership, and social opportunities. 

What you can do

We rely on high school educators to help us identify, recruit, and support students in applying to college through QuestBridge. Here’s what you can do:

Who we are looking for

QuestBridge students are academically outstanding, and come from families that usually earn less than $65,000.

Refer a student

Refer as many students as you think qualify. We will reach out to them with further information, and they can opt-out at any time.
