College for many high school students is a dream, and for too many students, figuring out how to pay for it is a nightmare.
Zoey Twyford and Tianna Briese, from Minnehaha Academy's senior class, had their dreams come true when they were awarded the Questbridge National College Match Scholarship. The Questbridge National Match Scholarship helps outstanding students from lower income families gain admission and full four-year scholarships to the nation's most selective colleges. More than 71 percent of awardees are in the top 5 percent of their high school class. This year there were 440 scholarship recipients from 12,818 applicants around the country.
