Founded in 1994, Quest Bridge, is a non-profit organization that connects low income high school students that earn high grades with educational and scholarship opportunities to the best colleges and university’s in the United States.
According to this website, there are 30,000 low income students who are academically qualified to attend top colleges each year. Over 80% of them do not apply to these colleges because they assume they cannot afford to attend a college such as Brown or Yale University.
Quest Bridge believes that when these low income high school high achievers miss the opportunity to attend a first class college it has a serious effect on their future.
Applicants must meet the academic criteria and financial qualifications. Quest Bridge also takes into account for some personal circumstances.
There are 37 college partners.

Goes some time back and still strong, it sounds. Good for them.
I think this organization can make a world of difference for a low income child.
Wasn’t familiar with Quest Bridge — interesting and how neat.
I don’t think many people know about this one. Hopefully more do now.
