Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship
The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship makes it possible for the nation’s top community college students to complete their bachelor’s degrees by transferring to a four-year college or university.
The applicant deadline for Phase One of the online application is November 7, 2013, at 12:00 p.m. noon, central time.
The Foundation provides up to $30,000 per year to each of approximately 75 deserving students selected annually, making it the largest private scholarship for two-year and community college transfer students in the country. 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. Awards vary by individual, based on the cost of tuition as well as other grants or scholarships he or she may receive.
As minimum criteria, candidates must:
- Be a current student at an accredited US community college or 2-year institution with sophomore status or a recent graduate (within the last 5 years)
- Have a cumulative unweighted college GPA 3.5 or above
- Plan to transfer to a 4-year college or university to begin studies in the coming fall (fall 2014)
- Demonstrate unmet financial need
