Results: Quest began in 1994 as a five-week intensive summer enrichment program on the Stanford campus. The program provided high-potential, underserved high school students with personal direction, and skills to construct and achieve their dreams. After ten years the program had become national in scope and placed over 285 students into top colleges (the majority in Stanford or Harvard), while maintaining a 99% college graduation rate. In 2003 Quest’s became QuestBridge: a unique intermediary between the nation’s brightest, under-served youth and leading institutions of higher education. Since then QuestBridge has demonstrated proof of concept through continuous, significant expasion. QuestBridge is funded through foundations, private individuals, and our partner colleges.
Direct beneficiaries per year: We have partnered with over 25 of the top, private colleges and universities to provide over 1000 bright, low-income youth with full or nearly full 4-year scholarships each year.
