QuestBridge is a national nonprofit that connects the nation’s most exceptional, low-income youth with leading institutions of higher education and further life opportunities. By recruiting, developing, and motivating these students — beginning in high school through college to their early career — QuestBridge aims to help talented, low-income students attend the nation’s best colleges and to support them to achieve success in their respective careers and communities.

This year, two PDHS students and one LQHS student were selected from a pool of over 17,900 applications and matched with a partner school to receive a full, four year scholarship to a top school of their choice!

From PDHS were Emiliano Camacho (12) and Emma Graham (12) who matched with MIT and Grinnell, respectively. In addition one more student, Clarissa Bycott (12), was chosen as a finalist and went through the QuestBridge Regular Decision process.

From LQHS was Divan Mejia Gonzalez, who matched with California Institute of Technology.

DSUSD is incredibly proud of each of these students and we are excited to see what the future holds for each of them!
