QuestBridge scholarships applications are now being accepted. We will go through the details of QuestBridge scholarship programme, its perks, and the application process step by step in this article.
The QuestBridge Scholarships 2022-23 are fully paid scholarships for students in the United States. The QuestBridge scholarships are offered to seniors in high school. The QuestBridge scholarship covers the entire four-year scholarship and is valued at over $200,000.
The Texas Match the Promise Foundation encourages families to save for college by providing matching scholarships and tuition grants to Texas Tuition Promise Fund prepaid tuition plan participants.
At qualifying Texas public colleges and universities, Promise Fund tuition units represent a predetermined amount of undergraduate resident tuition and schoolwide compulsory fees. During the current Promise Fund sales season, Match the Promise will award Promise Fund tuition units to qualified recipients, augmenting participant contributions to the fund.
The National College Match scholarship is offered by QuestBridge in collaboration with 40 top colleges and universities across the United States. With no parental contribution and no student loans, the QuestBridge scholarship covers the whole cost of attendance for each college, including tuition, housing and board, travel expenses, and books and supplies. The QuestBridge scholarship may, however, require student participation in the form of work study or student savings.
Two Levels of Scholarships
Up to $500 of participant tuition unit purchases will be matched with the same type of tuition units. Scholarship recipients with a family income of $75,000 or less will receive a two-to-one match. All other scholarship recipients will receive a one-to-one match.
A one-time grant of tuition units worth $2,000 at today’s prices will be awarded. Matching Scholarships will be approved for up to 150 top scoring applicants. The five applicants who score the highest will receive Promise Scholarships.
