National College Match Application

Are you a low-income high school senior who has excelled academically, but feels that the nation’s best colleges are financially out of reach? The QuestBridge National College Match can be your pathway to a top college. Through this college and scholarship application process, you can apply for free to the nation’s best colleges and be considered for early admission and a full four-year scholarship from the college.

To be considered for a full four-year scholarship to the QuestBridge college partners, your first step is to submit a free, online National College Match application, which will serve as your application to our college partners if you are selected as a Finalist.

  • School Report from your high school counselor
  • School Profile (optional, but recommended)
