Refer a Student

QuestBridge connects the nation's brightest students from low-income backgrounds to top colleges across the United States. We have two programs, the National College Match for high school seniors, and the College Prep Scholars Program for high school juniors. 

When you refer students to QuestBridge, we will send them information about our programs so they can start their path to a top college. Referrals help us reach more students, but they are not required to apply. Students can opt out of our communications at any time.

You can refer younger students and we will contact them when they become eligible to apply for our programs.
