Jack Kent Cooke Foundation (Undergraduate)

The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship Program honors excellence by supporting outstanding community college students with financial need as they transfer to and complete their bachelor’s degrees at the nation’s top four-year colleges and universities.

Sponsor: Jack Kent Cooke Foundation

The Foundation selects up to 50 community college transfer students each year and awards each scholar up to $30,000 annually.

To be eligible for the program, students must be nominated by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Faculty Representative at their two-year institution. A review panel of distinguished university faculty and admissions professionals judge the nominees using criteria including academic achievement and critical thinking ability, financial need, will to succeed, and breadth of interest and activities.

How to Apply
Students cannot apply directly to the Foundation. Each two-year college may nominate up to two students each year to be considered for the scholarship.
