The Match Scholarship

Attend a top college for free

Ranking colleges is one of the things that makes the National College Match so unique. You could be “matched”— or admitted early with a guaranteed full four-year Match Scholarship — to the college that appears highest on your list that is also able to match with you. Match Scholarship Recipients are admitted early to one of QuestBridge's college partners with a full four-year scholarship, worth over $325,000.

All Match Scholarship packages:

  • Have NO parental contribution
  • Have NO student loans
  • May contain a student contribution in the form of federal work-study, summer work, and/or student savings

About the scholarship

Our college partners use their own funds as well as state and federal aid to fund the Match Scholarship. It is offered as part of a generous financial aid package provided by the college that covers the full cost of attendance, including:

Tuition and fees

Housing and food

Books and supplies

Travel expenses
