Yale University is proud to partner with QuestBridge, a nonprofit that helps high-achieving, low-income students gain admission and full four-year scholarships to the nation's best colleges. As Dean of Undergraduate Admissions at Yale, I believe the QuestBridge National College Match can assist students in your community in the college application process, and I encourage you to refer your qualified high school seniors today. The deadline for students to apply is September 27, 2018.

Yale is one of 40 top colleges that partner with QuestBridge to find outstanding students to join our campus community. Through the National College Match, students can apply for admission and full four-year scholarships to multiple top colleges.

The QuestBridge application is unique because it includes space for students to share their academic strengths, experiences, and identities. As the members of the Yale Admissions Committee and I select students to join our diverse community of scholars who represent all backgrounds, interests, and beliefs, we find these insights especially valuable. 

I encourage you to refer qualified students for the National College Match. Your referral could make a life-changing impact on your student’s future.
