Twelve Clark County School District (CCSD) students were matched with top-tier colleges and universities through the QuestBridge National College Match, with all tuition and expenses paid.

These students have earned full four-year scholarships, valued at more than $200,000, that cover tuition, housing, books, supplies and travel expenses. Match Scholarship recipients receive early admittance and are ensured an affordable college education. More than 2,200 high school seniors received the scholarship nationwide, the program’s highest number to date.

“This match has been the biggest relief related to paying for college since I come from a first-generation family. My family lives in a studio apartment – now they won’t have to worry about funding my college or taking out loans. I now have hope that I will be able to succeed and go further in life without worrying about money,” said Devin, an aspiring politician. 

The life-changing award allows Angelica to be able to have an “amazing learning and life experience in another state.”
