For his inaugural podcast episode, new “Meet Princeton!” host Esteban Aguas ’19, assistant dean of admission, speaks with Allen Nieva ’26 and Sukaina Shivji ’26 about their experiences being admitted to Princeton through the QuestBridge National College Match. QuestBridge is a national nonprofit whose goal is to connect lower-income and first-generation students with partner colleges and universities throughout the country. Since 2006, Princeton’s partnership with QuestBridge has allowed the University to reaffirm its commitment to providing a top-quality education to students from a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds. In that time, Princeton has "matched" with hundreds of scholars. We invite you to join the conversation to hear the students’ stories and learn how Princeton supports first-generation and lower income students on our campus.
