Apply now for Jack Kent Cooke Foundation College Scholarship

Jack Kent Cooke

The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation College Scholarship Program offers funds — up to $40,000 a year, for up to four years — to support the college ambitions of high-achieving students who have financial need.

The scholarship is available to high-school seniors who have GPAs of 3.5 or higher and have high SAT or ACT scores. (See the JKCF web site for complete eligibility information.)

The foundation will consider applications from students whose families make up to $95,000 a year, but most of the recipients will have family income low enough to qualify for a Pell Grant. The average family income of recipients is $35,000 per year.

Application for the scholarship will be done using the Common App. (Again, see the JKCF site for details.) There is no cost to apply. You must complete the application by November 13, 2019. You’ll need to provide financial information, school records, essays and teacher recommendations, so allow yourself time to compile and complete the needed paperwork.

    Don’t forget the Jack Kent Cooke Young Scholars program. It also offers financial aid for summer programs and extracurriculars, educational advising, and college counseling. Students apply in 7th grade and are notified early fall of 8th grade year. The program is for all four years of high school. My daughter is in her 3rd year (she’s a sophomore) of the program, and it’s fantastic!
