The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation College Scholarship Program is an undergraduate scholarship program available to high-achieving high school seniors with financial need who seek to attend and graduate from the nation's best four-year colleges and universities. Selected from a nationwide pool of applicants, up to 40 students will become Jack Kent Cooke Scholars and have access to funding of up to $40,000 per year for up to four years for undergraduate studies. Each award is intended to cover a significant share of the student’s educational expenses – including tuition, living expenses, books and required fees. Awards vary by individual, based on the cost of tuition as well as other grants or scholarships he or she may receive. Scholars are selected based on exceptional academic ability and achievement, financial need, persistence, a desire to help others, and leadership. At a minimum, applicants must:
Plan to graduate in spring 2018 & intend to enroll in an accredited four-year college beginning in fall 2018
Earn a cumulative unweighted GPA of 3.5 or above
SAT combined critical reading and math score of 1200 or above and/or ACT composite score of 26 or above
Demonstrate significant unmet financial need. We will consider applicants with family income up to $95,000. However, we anticipate that a majority of scholarship recipients will be eligible to receive a Pell grant.
