Quad Education is dedicated to helping ambitious, well-deserving students access higher education and realize their dreams. We believe that every student, regardless of age, race, gender, socioeconomic status, and background, has the right to learn; we strive to break down barriers and open possibilities for all.
In keeping with our vision, we’ve created the Quad Access to Education Scholarship. Our scholarship is for low-income, high-achieving, first-generation students who demonstrate financial need.
ATE Scholarship winners are awarded five hours of college application or SAT/ACT tutoring support in the form of Quad Education service credit.
To be eligible for Quad Education’s merit-based, first-generation student Scholarship, applications must meet the following requirements:
* Applicants must submit ACT/SAT fee waivers forms to confirm demonstrated financial need. This is a scholarship for low-income students who demonstrate academic excellence.

Quad Education is committed to transparency in how we evaluate ATE Scholarship applications. Our selection criteria are as follows:
1. Your video submission and scholarship essay are equally weighted in our selection process. Your video is evaluated based on the substance and thoughtfulness of your answers. Your essay is evaluated based on its content and your writing style.
2. We will select one student whose video best demonstrates how winning the ATE scholarship and attending college will help them realize their goals and whose essay offer a candid, well-constructed narrative about themselves.
3. The winner will be announced on our scholarship page. We will also notify the winner directly via email.
