    The QuestBridge College Prep Scholarship levels the playing field of college admissions. It equips high-achieving low-income students with the knowledge necessary to compete for admission to the nation's most selective colleges. If you are a high school junior who has achieved academic excellence in the face of economic challenges, we encourage you to complete the College Prep Scholarship application at QuestBridge Home Page.

    Selected students will receive one or more of the following awards:

    Full scholarships to college summer programs: 10 students will receive scholarships to summer school programs at Emory, Harvard, Notre Dame, Penn, Stanford, or Yale. The scholarships will cover the full cost of travel, tuition, and room & board.

    Individualized college admissions counseling: 40 students will be paired with an experienced counselor from QuestBridge's staff and will receive personalized admissions advice via phone and e-mail throughout the college application process.

    College Admissions Conference invitations: 1,000 students will be invited to QuestBridge conferences at Stanford or Yale. Participants will attend workshops on how low-income students can successfully apply to leading colleges. They also will meet college admissions officers and learn more about the opportunities that QuestBridge offers.

    All-expense-paid campus visits: 100 students will have their travel expenses and room & board covered by a QuestBridge partner college to visit their campus.

    Tele-mentoring with college students: 100 students will each be paired with an Amherst College student who will provide advice about the college admissions process.
