Yes. Many high-achieving, low-income students gain admission to our college partners with generous financial aid each year through QuestBridge programs. At the same time, many others are also admitted with generous financial aid without applying through QuestBridge. We encourage students to consider the benefits of the National College Match in comparison to the benefits of the other options available to them, and to select the option that best suits their particular circumstances and preferences.
We also encourage all QuestBridge Finalists who are not admitted through the Match to apply to a range of target and likely non-QuestBridge colleges where they are confident they can be admitted.
