We are ecstatic to announce that nine KIPP Texas seniors received the prestigious Questbridge Scholarship this year and matched with their top colleges and universities. Our students were selected from an applicant pool of more than 16,500 students.
The QuestBridge program helps outstanding seniors gain admission and full four-year scholarships to the nation’s most selective colleges and universities. If a student is matched, they are granted early admission to one of the QuestBridge college partners with a full four-year scholarship.
This year’s winners are:
Alexis Suarez, KIPP Austin Brave High School, Pomona College
Aldair Gonzalez, KIPP Austin Collegiate
Top Schools: Emory University, University of Southern California, Stanford University
