About Indel, Sue said, “I feel that Indel’s determination, individuality, ability to question and search for deeper meaning, and ability to overcome obstacles is what is going to make Indel extremely successful in college.”
Match Scholarship Recipients are admitted early to QuestBridge college partners with full four-year scholarships that are provided by the colleges and universities, ensuring for these students and their families that an education at a top college can be affordable. The Match Scholarship is offered as part of a generous financial aid package provided by the college that covers the full cost of attendance, including tuition, room and board, books and supplies, and travel expenses.
