Applying to college can seem daunting, and the prospect of paying for it can seem even more overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. The College Prep Scholars Program equips high-achieving high school juniors from low-income backgrounds with the knowledge, confidence, and resources to apply to top colleges.

Why apply as a junior? Being a College Prep Scholar is a notable distinction that shows 45 college partners that you are a competitive candidate for admission. In addition, your application will automatically carry over for the National College Match when you’re a senior, giving you a head start on applying for a full four-year scholarship to our college partners. College Prep Scholars are historically five times more likely than other applicants to receive full four-year scholarships through the National College Match.

  • Who Should Apply – Academically outstanding high school juniors from families earning less than $65,000/year for a family of four
  • How to Apply – Deadline March 24

WHY QUESTBRIDGE? Top colleges are actively seeking students who have excelled academically despite financial hardship, and they partner with QuestBridge to find students like you. Our 45 college partners — including Stanford, Princeton, and Duke — all identify College Prep Scholars as being among the nation’s brightest high school juniors.
