"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."

Get Involved with QuestBridge



There are many meaningful ways for visionary individuals, corporations, institutions, and organizations to become a part of our QuestBridge ecosystem and have highly leveraged impact on our students and organizations.

QuestBridge shares the financial cost of our deep recruiting networks and support systems with our college partners, personalized scholarship clients, and internship providers. This combined revenue stream essentially covers Quest's core operating budget. This core model has been self-sustaining since 2010. This has allowed us to shift our focus to new forms of recruitment, support, and resources for our students.

Quest  welcomes financial support for special projects of interest to donors, and our revenue model allows these donations to go directly to the project rather than overhead or indirect costs. 

Below are some high-impact ways to get involved with QuestBridge:

Create a Quest for Excellence Award

Want to support young women interested in math, science, and engineering? Want to support students who have lived through wars or disasters? Want to help students from Appalachia or East Los Angeles or Harlem? Change the lives of thousands of students by creating a Quest for Excellence Award for a specific, customized group of students. Please see the Fein Fellows Award as an example. Click here for more info on Quest for Excellence Awards.

Establish a Professional Internship

Help us build bridges for talented, low-income students to go from America's best colleges to America's best corporations and career opportunities.
