I'm a rising senior about to get either a green card or a derivative citizenship through my U.S. citizen mother (whichever one is easier to file, I guess), but I study in Asia. Am I allowed to use QuestBridge, given that my household's annual income (converted to USD) falls in/under the qualifications?
edit to add: The website says "U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents OR students, regardless of citizenship, currently attending high school in the United States" but I interpret that as "any U.S. citizen/permanent resident (perhaps including those outside the U.S.) OR any high school student studying in the U.S."; that's why I'm asking here too.
If you live outside of the US, I do not believe you can qualify to apply for either the College Prep Scholars or College Match program. I believe you must be attending high school in the US at the time you are apply for the program with the intent of graduating from a US based HS.
Here are some links to questbridge.com where they delineate eligibility requirement:
To me, I interpret this as only being available to those attending HS in the US.
The National College Match is open to all U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents OR students, regardless of citizenship, currently attending high school in the United States. International students living outside the U.S. are not eligible."
So I highly recommend that you contact Questbridge directly at email@example.com or phone them during regular West Coast office hours which like 9 to 5 PST. Make sure you use the correct USA dialing prefix when making the International call.
As we are a small staff serving thousands of applicants around the country, we are not always able to answer the phone and can more effectively support students, parents, and educators via email. The best way to get your questions answered is to visit AskQB for FAQs or email us with additional questions.

I would ask them whether or not you would be eligible if you moved to the US or even a province like GUAM to attend HS and if that would qualify you to apply to the programs.
