Brown

Elite Ivy League school, Brown University’s African American population is up 60% for the class of 2014, largely due to a program called QuestBridge, according to the Brown Daily Herald.

The University targeted high schools with a large number of would-be first-generation university graduates, employed minority recruitment interns and joined the QuestBridge consortium, a program that identifies and awards scholarships to promising, underprivileged students across the country.

About 2,000 students, chiefly low-income and of color, learned about Brown through QuestBridge, Miller said.

“That gave us access to a really talented group of kids,” he said. “We do think QuestBridge had a great deal to do with this increase.”
