QuestBridge College Match Scholarships

Website: http://www.questbridge.org/for-students/ncm-why-apply

Who's Eligible: High achieving, low-income students

Award Amount: Up to 100% of your demonstrated financial need

Due Date: September 28


Students with strong academic chops, but little money are welcome to apply for these unorthodox scholarships. Instead of presenting students with a check, QuestBridge requires that applicants select up to 8 of QuestBridge's 30 partner schools and rank them in order of which they would like to attend most. Should a student win the award AND get into one of their top 8 institutions, QuestBridge and the school will make sure that that student gets their full financial needs met. The catch is that QuestBridge schools are competitive. If your transcripts will not receive a laugh at Notre Dame, Yale or MIT, you have a good shot with this one.
