"The QuestBridge application is free, and if you become a finalist, applying to other partner universities is also free. Besides the fact that QuestBridge removes the financial burden, it provides an application that focuses on low-income students' accomplishments while highlighting the hardships they endured. Applying to QuestBridge certainly benefits low-income students because colleges come to understand the challenges they have faced."

Did you know…

…a top-tier college education is possible for low-income students? Leading colleges are looking for students who have achieved academic excellence despite financial challenges. Despite this, only 34% of academically qualified low-income students attend leading colleges.

…you can afford the education you dreamed about? Attending a selective private college can actually be cheaper than going to a community or state college. Financial aid packages at many leading schools cover 100% of students' demonstrated financial need.
