Fitch Senior Earns Prestigious Questbridge Scholarship

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio – Questbridge is a nonprofit organization established with 52 college partners, dedicated to providing an affordable ivy-level education to high achieving students.

Fitch student Grayson Weston applied to the College Prep Scholars program in his junior year of high school. Out of over 15,000 applicants, only 3,518 were accepted, including Grayson. This program helped prepare him for the college application process by giving him writing tips and offering college fairs for scholars to attend.

After being accepted into the program, he applied for the National College Match Scholarship, which gives out full-ride scholarships for undergraduate education. Over 20,800 students applied for this scholarship, and only 2,242 were matched to a school. Grayson was one of those students. Through this program, Grayson was able to apply to 15 universities at no cost and received a full-ride scholarship for four years to Boston College, totaling close to $400,000. He, along with 114 other students, were chosen as scholarship recipients for the prestigious Boston College.

Grayson plans to major in physics and minor in Studio art while at BC.
