QuestBridge: only for low-income students?

I've been exploring the QuestBridge program for college applications and scholarships. Is it true that their resources are limited to low-income students only? Any thoughts or experiences?

Hi there! Yes, you're correct – the main goal of the QuestBridge program is to help connect talented low-income students with top-tier colleges and universities. The program is geared toward providing opportunities for students who might not have the financial means to access higher education of this caliber.

Specifically, the QuestBridge program targets students from households with annual incomes of generally less than $65,000 for a family of four. However, the eligibility criteria do vary, and they take into account a holistic view of financial need. Some selected students may come from slightly higher income levels as well, depending on their family's circumstances.

If you don't fit within the income bracket or if you're unsure, I’d recommend looking into other potential resources for assistance in the college application process and finding scholarships. CollegeVine, for example, offers a chancing engine, essay-guidance, and other valuable resources that can help you during your application journey.

Good luck!
