Scholarships for 7th graders with high achievement and financial need

February 18, 2019 Leave a comment Go to comments

The application period for the Jack Kent Cooke Young Scholars Program, a scholarship for high-performing students with financial need, is open through March 14, 2019.

The Young Scholars program awards scholarships that can be used for enrichment — from music lessons to summer programs — or for private-school tuition. Students apply when they are in 7th grade, and scholarship winners receive financial support for five years, beginning in 8th grade.

Award winners also receive academic guidance from advisers with the program, and participate in summer programs.

To apply, a student must come from a family with an adjusted annual gross income of $95,000 or less. The median annual family income of students selected in 2018 was less than $40,000.

The application has lots of parts to complete, including personal and teacher recommendations, so it’s wise to get an early start.
