Jack Kent Cooke Scholarship


Community college sophomores and recent graduates are eligible for this scholarship. Recipients are awarded up to $40,000 per year to complete their bachelor’s degree, in addition to opportunities for internships, study abroad, and graduate school funding.

Minimum 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. We will consider applicants with family income up to $95,000. However, we anticipate that a majority of scholarship recipients will be eligible to receive a Pell grant.

•              Have not previously enrolled at or attended a four-year institution.

Please Note: Students who have attended a four-year institution in the past are not eligible for this scholarship. (If you started at a four-year institution, but did not complete a semester of full-time study, then you may be eligible. Please contact the JKC Foundation to verify your eligibility.)

Students who have already transferred to a four-year institution or plan to transfer to start during the spring 2017 semester are also not eligible for this scholarship.
