Am I qualified for the Match Scholarship if my Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is not zero?

QuestBridge -

Yes! All Finalists are selected by QuestBridge because we believe they have the qualifications, both financially and academically, to be competitive candidates for a Match Scholarship. ​
Selection for the Match Scholarship is made by each college individually, and their policies vary​, so your EFC may also vary from school to school (and your EFC as calculated by the FAFSA could also be different from what individual schools will calculate it to be​). Some schools may look for a $0 EFC for Match Scholarship Recipients, while others may not. Since our college partners are committed to making college affordable, we encourage students to rank all schools they would want to attend, regardless of this financial aspect.
