"All the challenges I had, starting from junior year, were alleviated by QuestBridge. I remember thinking I'd only apply to a more limited number of schools based on the amount of application fee waivers I could obtain, but through QuestBridge I was able to apply to more partner schools."

Scholarship Details



College Match scholarship recipients are granted admission to one of QuestBridge's partner colleges with a full, four-year scholarship. This scholarship is offered as part of a generous financial aid package provided by QuestBridge's partner colleges.  Our partner colleges use a combination of their own funds as well as state and federal aid to cover the cost of attendance, including:

  • Tuition and fees
  • Room and board
  • Books and supplies
  • Travel expenses

All College Match scholarship packages:

  • Have NO parental contribution
  • Have NO student loans
  • May contain student work-study and a student summer work contribution

See a glossary of scholarship terms.

The exact scholarship package and terms vary slightly depending on the partner college. Click on a college below to see the financial aid package offered to students who are admitted through the College Match. These numbers are based on costs for the 2013-2014 school year, unless otherwise indicated. Amounts will change slightly from year to year, but as the cost of college increases, the scholarship packages will correspondingly increase.
