The Cooke Foundation College Scholarship Program is currently accepting applications! Selected scholarship recipients receive up to $55,000 per year to fund their undergraduate studies, as well as advising about selecting a college, amongst other things. This scholarship program is open to undocumented students. In their frequently asked questions section, the scholarship program further adds, “You must, however, reside in the United States or a U.S. territory and attend high school in the United States. At this time, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation is not providing services to students who attend high school outside of the United States.”
Here are the eligibility requirements as outlined by the Cooke College Scholarship Program:
- “Senior standing – Plan to graduate from a U.S. high school in spring 2024.
- Fall College Enrollment – Intend to enroll in an accredited four-year college beginning in fall 2024.
- GPA – Earn a minimum, cumulative unweighted GPA of 3.5 or above.
- Demonstrate Unmet Financial Need – We will consider applicants with family annual gross income up to $95,000. During the selection process, the Foundation will conduct a full financial review which will take into account all income and assets of the student and the student’s parents.”
The deadline to apply is November 16, 2023
