Scholarships for current 7th graders with financial need

High-achieving, seventh-grade students whose families have limited incomes are encouraged to apply for the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s Young Scholars program. Applications are being accepted through March 21, 2013.

The Young Scholars program pays for enrichment activities — such as summer camps, music lessons, and distance learning classes — for students who are academically solid and financially challenged. (Wondering what “financially challenged” means? Applicants must have adjusted family income of $95,000 or less, and the Foundation reports that the average family income of its scholars is $25,000 a year.)

Students must apply during their seventh-grade year. Those selected enter the program in 8th grade and continue as Young Scholars through high school.

The application package requires tax forms and teacher recommendations, so give yourself time to get everything together.
