Four seniors from Passaic County Technical Institute have been named QuestBridge National Scholar Finalists! Thanya Begum, Tasnova Choudhury, Dibya Dey, and Omar Ibrahim are among the 6,507 students selected to be considered for QuestBridge Scholarships!

More than 16,000 students applied for the opportunity to become National College Match Finalists. The program is a powerful platform that connects the nation's brightest students from low-income backgrounds with leading institutions of higher education. Those participating in the QuestBridge program meet the following criteria: have primarily A’s in the most challenging courses available, rank in the top 5-10% of their graduating class, achieve higher than 1310 on SAT or PSAT and an ACT composite score of 28. QuestBridge has forty college partners from which to choose, including Ivy League schools. Students ultimately matched with colleges will receive a full four-year scholarship.

Thanya Begum and Omar Ibrahim were recently selected as PCTI Students of the Month – a designation which celebrates academic achievement and community service involvement. Both students aim to study Mechanical Engineering in college. Tasnova Choudhury will study Molecular Biology and Dibya Dey will pursue Engineering.

Congratulations to PCTI’s students for making it through the first round of QuestBridge to be considered for scholarships!
