Scholarships

  • QuestBridge is a national nonprofit based in Palo Alto, California that connects the nation's most exceptional students from low-income backgrounds with leading institutions of higher education and further life opportunities.

  • Gates Millenium Scholarship Program is an academic scholarship award and program for higher education, available to high-achieving ethnic minority students in the United States. It is funded by Microsoft founder Bill Gates through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

  • The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation exists to bring better to the world through investment in exceptional students who are dedicated to leadership, service, and action that positively affects others.

  • The Pell Grant is a subsidy the U.S. federal government provides for students who need it to pay for college.

  • The Cooke College Scholarship Program is an undergraduate scholarship program available to high-achieving high school seniors with financial need who seek to attend and graduate from the nation's best four-year colleges and universities.

  • Colleges may offer financial aid. I recommend applying to schools that are need-blind and offer financial aid on a need-based basis. This is a great list to get you started.
