The Quest Scholars Program was founded on a firm belief in the potential and ability of the nation’s most talented under-served students. The organization includes two programs—QuestLeadership, and QuestBridge. Both programs are free of charge to participants.
QuestLeadership is a part of the Quest Scholars Program, and is a mentorship and leadership-training program for exceptionally bright, low income students with interests in higher education, leadership, and professional careers. QuestLeadership begins with a five-week summer residential program on the Stanford campus for high school students entering their junior and senior years. Its support continues through the rest of high school and the undergraduate college experience—providing college admissions counseling and more. Now in its twelfth year of operation, QuestLeadership graduates have enjoyed tremendous success in their college and graduate school endeavors. 100% of Quest Scholars have gone on to college, and approximately 82% of Quest students attend Stanford, Harvard, Berkeley, MIT, or other Ivy League schools.
QuestBridge is a program that links bright, motivated low-income students with educational and scholarship opportunities at some of the nation's best colleges. You can read more about these opportunities at www.questbridge.org.
