In spring 2010, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation will award scholarships to help community college students with exceptional promise and demonstrated financial need reach their full potential through education. Each award will fund a portion of educational costs at a four-year institution, including tuition, fees, and living expenses for two to three years of a Jack Kent Cooke Scholar's undergraduate degree.
To be eligible for the program, a candidate must:
- Be a current student at an accredited U.S. community college or two-year institution with sophomore status OR a recent graduate (within the last five years),
- Have a cumulative college grade point average of 3.50 or better on a 4.0 scale (or the equivalent),
- Plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to begin studies in the coming fall,
- Be nominated by his or her two-year institution, and
- Have unmet financial need
