"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."
