Did you know…
…a top-tier college education is possible for low-income students? Students from low-income backgrounds with strong academic records actually have significant advantages over other students in the college admissions process. Leading colleges are seeking to increase socio-economic diversity on their campuses, which means they are looking for students who have achieved academic excellence despite financial challenges.
…you can afford the education you dreamed about? Attending a selective private college can actually be less expensive than going to a community or state college. Financial aid packages at many leading schools cover 100% of students' demonstrated financial need.
QuestBridge's College Prep Scholarship helps prepare you to make the most of your advantages in the college admissions process and get the full benefit of top colleges' generous financial aid policies.
The College Prep Scholarship provides opportunities to help qualified students successfully navigate the college admissions process. The awards include:
If you are a high school junior with a strong academic record and an annual family income of less than $60,000, we encourage you to apply. Many past award recipients have also been part of the first generation in their family to attend college.
The College Prep Scholarship online application is completely free and opens in mid-February. In addition to filling out the online application, you are required to submit transcripts, test score reports, and one letter of recommendation. Before applying, you should familiarize yourself with our eligibility requirements.
