Three Peddie seniors awarded full college scholarships

Three Peddie students have been awarded full college scholarships through the QuestBridge National College Match Program.

Seniors Morike Ayodeji, Bryanna Mendez and Kishan Vyas were notified in December that they are three of 1,127 students in the nation to receive a Match Scholarship. According to QuestBridge, scholarships are offered through a very competitive process and are granted to high-performing students.

Match Scholarship recipients are admitted early to QuestBridge college partners, which include top liberal arts colleges and research universities. Winners receive a generous financial aid package that covers the full cost of tuition, room and board, books and supplies, and travel expenses for four years.  

“We could not be more proud of – and excited for – Morike, Bryanna and Kishan,” said Lisa McClellan, assistant director of college counseling at The Peddie School. “QuestBridge has a rigorous selection criteria, so it is no small feat that all three of these Peddie scholars have been granted this prestigious scholarship.”
