Washington University in St. Louis Is a New Partner of QuestBridge

In an effort to boost the socioeconomic diversity of its student body, Washington University has announced that is has become a university partner of the QuestBridge program. QuestBridge, based in Palo Alto, California, connects high-achieving students from low-income families to 40 of the nation’s most selective colleges and universities.

Students submit applications through the QuestBridge National College Match program and indicate which college or university partners they would like to attend. QuestBridge determines whether the student is qualified and if so, notifies its member institution. If the student is matched to the college that he or she indicated, they agree to enroll at that school and receive a full-tuition scholarship.

Turner, vice provost of admissions at Washington University, said that “we are very excited to join QuestBridge, which has a proven track record of helping talented, low-income students navigate the college application process. QuestBridge and Washington University share a common belief that talented students should have access to higher education regardless of their financial background.”

Turner joined the staff at Washington University in 2016 after working for 15 years as an admissions officer at Northeastern University in Boston. She is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and holds a master’s degree in the social foundations of education from the University of Maryland.
