Mount St. Mary senior wins QuestBridge College Match Scholarship

 

Mount St. Mary Academy senior, Caroline Coplin-Chudy, has been awarded a full college scholarship to Duke University through QuestBridge’s college match program.

 

Caroline was one of 5,338 students who were selected as finalists out of an application pool of 14,491 in the college match program. Of those finalists, she was one of 767 matched to a QuestBridge partner and one of 32 selected nationally for admission to Duke University. She will attend Duke University in Durham, North Carolina on a $290,468 scholarship award that will cover full tuition, fees, room and board, books, supplies and travel expenses for four years.

 

QuestBridge is a national program that pairs high-achieving, low-income high school seniors with full scholarships to the nation’s top colleges. Students selected for the College Match are “matched” to one of QuestBridge’s 38 college partners that include top liberal arts colleges such as Amherst, Colby, Pomona, and Williams and research universities such as Brown, Columbia, Duke, Stanford, and Yale. Students must demonstrate high academic achievement that meets or exceeds the admissions standards of the partner colleges; they are selected as finalists based on their academic, financial and extracurricular credentials.
