Two Brophy Seniors Awarded Prestigious QuestBridge Four-Year Scholarships

Two Brophy College Preparatory seniors, Anthony Gutierrez and Martin Rodriguez Nunez, were recently awarded four-year scholarships to Columbia University and Tufts University through the prestigious QuestBridge program. QuestBridge partners with premier colleges committed to socio-economic diversity. “We are thrilled to share the news with our largest group of College Matches in QuestBridge’s history, and are so pleased that our partner colleges continue to offer such generous aid to our students”, said Ana McCullough, co-founder and CEO of QuestBridge.

Gutierrez and Rodriguez Nunez were among 501 outstanding high school seniors from across the country who have been selected as this year’s 2014 National College Match Scholarship Recipients. Now in its 11th season, the QuestBridge College Match Program (“College Match”) has successfully linked more than 3,000 high-achieving, low-income students with admission and full scholarships to QuestBridge partner colleges since 2003.

The College Match program is unique in that it not only educates students on the opportunities for them at top colleges, but it also provides a step-by-step early admissions process to connect students with the nation’s best schools. The QuestBridge application, which helps to highlight the unique backgrounds of high-achieving, low-income students, serves as a college and scholarship application to 35 colleges and universities. Students selected for the College Match are admitted with a guaranteed full, four-year scholarship— including tuition, room and board, and other expenses — provided by the college. In total, more than $100 million in scholarships will be awarded to College Match Scholarship Recipients.

This year’s College Matches are academically exceptional, with an average unweighted GPA of 3.91. The middle 50% received between 1870-2130 on the SAT (out of 2400), and between 29-33 on the ACT (out of 36); 81% are in the top 5% of their graduating class; and 95% ranked in the top 10% of their class. Financially, their median household income is $28,873, and 84% qualify for free or reduced price lunch. Additionally, 77% are among the first generation in their families to attend a four-year U.S. college.
