First, this email I received from Stanford University's Dean of undergraduate admissions:
Dear Mr. Brewer,
Stanford University is proud to partner with QuestBridge, a nonprofit that helps high-achieving, low-income students gain admission with full four-year scholarships or generous financial aid to the nation's best colleges. As Dean of Undergraduate Admission and Financial Aid, I believe the QuestBridge College Prep Scholars Program can give your high school juniors a head start in the college application process. I encourage you to refer your high school juniors today.
Your referral could make a life-changing impact on your student’s future. One of the many awards College Prep Scholars could receive is a full scholarship to a college summer program at Stanford, or one of QuestBridge’s other outstanding college partners. All College Prep Scholars will also be invited to participate in a QuestBridge National College Admissions Conference to learn from and interact with admissions representatives from 40 of the nation’s best colleges.
When it’s time to apply to college later this year, College Prep Scholars will be well prepared to submit the best application possible. All of QuestBridge’s 40 college partners – including Stanford – recognize College Prep Scholars as highly competitive candidates.
I encourage you to refer qualified students for the College Prep Scholars Program. The deadline for students to apply is .
