The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship provides up to $40,000 per year to each of approximately 85 students selected annually. Each award is intended to cover a significant share of the student’s educational expenses – including tuition, living expenses, books and required fees – for the final two to three years necessary to achieve a bachelor’s degree. Note: U.S. citizenship is not required. Candidates, however, must have attended an accredited two-year institution in the United States.
Here are the eligibility requirements:
- Be a current student at an accredited U.S. community college or two-year institution with sophomore status by December 31, 2016, or a recent graduate (since spring 2012).
- Plan to enroll full time in a baccalaureate program at an accredited college or university in fall 2017.
- Have a cumulative undergraduate grade point average of 3.5 or better on a scale of 4.0 (or the equivalent).
- Demonstrate significant unmet financial need.
- Have not previously enrolled at or attended a four-year institution.
The deadline to apply is October 25, 2016
