How is applying to the National College Match different from applying Early Decision to a QuestBridge college partner?

QuestBridge -

QuestBridge allows students to apply early to several different colleges simultaneously and for free. You complete one application, and if you are selected as a Finalist your information will be forwarded to all of the QuestBridge college partners that you ranked (up to 12). Your QuestBridge application will present your achievements in light of the obstacles you have overcome, as our application questions and essays are tailored to high-achieving, low-income students.

If you gain admission through the College Match, you will receive the Match Scholarship from your matched college, which will cover the full cost of attendance.

If you become a Finalist but do not gain admission through the College Match, you may still be considered in the Early Decision round at some of our college partners. Learn more about the options available by visiting the Application Requirements page for each QuestBridge college partner and going to the "Options following the Match" section.
