Scholarship Thursday #20
September 11, 2008 by Mara Strom
Scholarship time. Can you believe it’s Thursday again?
I hope you are all doing well in school and settling in nicely. I’ve got a great scholarship
opportunity today: It’s called QuestBridge. I just learned about this innovative non-profit organization recently and I am blown away with the work they are doing. Check it out – I’m sure you’ll feel the same way.
The QuestBridge National College Match
This non-profit organization pairs up with selective colleges to offer outstanding low-income high school seniors a full four-year scholarship. QuestBridge works with colleges like Yale, to help them open their doors to top students regardless of their family’s financial position. QuestBridge’s College Match program provides full four-year scholarships to top-tier colleges for low-income students, which cover all demonstrated financial need. This includes tuition, room and board – plus travel, books and living expenses. Scholarship packages automatically renew to cover all four years of college. Last year, 204 students were selected as QuestBridge Scholars. Go here to learn about the criteria for the National College Match program, here to better understand how the National College Match application cycle works, and here to download the application. Application deadline is September 30.
