"The YSS experience in and of itself was life changing. I befriended amazing and inspirational people, I explored the world beyond my 3,000-population country town, and I gained invaluable experience centering around collegiate life and academia. It was challenging, but no matter the outcome it was worth it in the end."
QuestBridge National College Match Program
The College Prep Scholarship is designed to prepare students to be competitive applicants to top colleges, and serves as a gateway for the QuestBridge National College Match program. The National College Match connects high-achieving low-income high school seniors with admission and full scholarships to QuestBridge’s partner colleges. In 2013, 440 students gained admission and full scholarships to selective colleges through the National College Match, and over 1,600 more applicants were admitted with generous financial aid through the QuestBridge Regular Decision process.
Quest Scholars Network
QuestBridge finalists at our partner colleges make up the Quest Scholars Network or QSN. The QSN is guided by three ideals: scholarship, leadership, and service. Scholarship is important as Scholars continue to strive for academic excellence and pursue opportunities that ensure future success. There are ample opportunities to develop leadership potential within each chapter’s executive board or the wider campus or world community. Service to others is a foundational aspect of what we do. Quest Scholars mentor and guide high school students and provide a supportive environment, especially to first-year Quest Scholars and peers. The QSN is committed to building a dynamic group of future leaders.
Quest Scholars have many opportunities for leadership and service, and can apply to become ambassadors, liaisons, group leaders, official bloggers, college counselors, interns, mentors, and more. Learn more about these opportunities and the Quest Scholars Network.
