Application now available for Jack Kent Cooke Foundation College Scholarship

September 12, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Jack Kent CookeThe Jack Kent Cooke Foundation College Scholarship Program offers funds — up to $30,000 a year — to support the college ambitions of high-achieving students with financial need.

The scholarship, which can be renewed for up to four years, is available to students who have high-school GPAs of 3.5 or higher and have scored in the top 15 percent on the SAT or ACT.

According to the foundation’s web site, students whose families make up to $95,000 a year will be considered; however, most of the recipients will have family income low enough to qualify for a Pell Grant.

The first part of the application process is open now. The Phase I application must be mailed in by November 5, 2013. Financial information, school records and teacher recommendations are required for the application, so allow yourself time to compile and complete the needed paperwork.
