Policy Regarding Outside Funding
Outside funding will replace the QuestBridge Scholarship amount. Boston University cannot award total financial aid over the full cost of attendance.

Policy on Health Insurance
BU will provide funding to cover the BU Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) cost each year if QuestBridge students cannot waive the BU SHIP. Students must complete the annual SHIP waiver process and be denied before they are eligible for the increased QuestBridge Scholarship amount.

Policy on Travel Allowance
The initial QuestBridge Scholarship amount will be based on a standard travel allowance. QuestBridge scholars can appeal if they incur higher travel costs; appeals will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Requirements Associated with Maintaining this Award
QuestBridge Scholars must be enrolled full-time (a minimum of 12 academic credits per semester) and maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA.

QuestBridge Scholars must reside in BU housing on the Charles River or Fenway Campus.

QuestBridge Scholars are encouraged to submit a FAFSA each year to be eligible for federal and state financial aid
