Calling all WesExplorers! This fall, discover the impact of Wesleyan’s distinctive educational experience when you connect with our vibrant, diverse community.

The WesExplore funded travel program gives high school seniors from groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education* the opportunity to visit campus for free. Please note that the October date is reserved for a select group of QuestBridge College Prep Scholars by invitation only, while the November date is for all eligible students chosen through an application process.

The QuestBridge WesExplore funded travel program will take place October 8-9, 2023.

  • Attendance is by invitation only

The November WesExplore funded travel program will take place November 9-10, 2023.

  • Apply for November WesExplore

*Eligible students for WesExplore include those who identify as Black/African American; Hispanic/Latinx; Asian American; American Indian, Native Alaskan, and/or Pacific Islander, as well as first-generation college students and/or those from families with limited financial resources. Undocumented students are also welcome. Please note that we are unable to support international participants.

If you have additional questions about WesExplore, please see the FAQ below or contact us at [email protected] .

QuestBridge WesExplore will be held on-campus October 8-9, 2023, and the November WesExplore will be held on-campus November 9-10, 2023.

The WesExplore funded travel program is an opportunity funded by Wesleyan for high school seniors from backgrounds that have been historically underrepresented in higher education to visit campus for Open House. Participants will be able to stay in a dorm with a student host, take a campus tour, visit classes, and attend various panels addressing areas such as: residential life, financial aid, study abroad, and life after Wes.

QuestBridge WesExplore in October is by invitation only. For the November WesExplore, all rising seniors who attend high school in the U.S. are welcome to apply, including students from groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education, such as low-income and first-generation-to-college students.

*Wesleyan University defines a first-generation college student as an individual whose parents/guardians did not complete a bachelor’s degree. We recognize that not all first-generation students are low-income and not all low-income students are first-generation, but we want to create a space to describe the resources available for students who are a part of these communities.

Yes! Meals, lodging in a dorm with a student host, and a round-trip plane/train ticket will be provided for all students admitted to the program.

Due to space limitations, the Office of Admission can only invite a certain number of students to campus. Given this selectivity, we ask students applying for WesExplore to submit an application and include a transcript through the end of junior year.

Apply to the November WesExplore program

We will waive the application fee for all applicants who apply for financial aid. Receiving this fee waiver will not disadvantage an applicant in any way.
