Jack Kent Cooke Scholarships
Jack Kent Cooke Foundation has opened the nomination process for the largest scholarships available to students and recent alumni from community colleges. Through the initiative, called the Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship Program, the private foundation will award up to $30,000 annually per recipient to help students and recent alumni from community colleges and two-year institutions pursue four-year degrees at any accredited college or university in the United States. Last year, the Foundation received approximately 500 nominations for these awards. The application deadline is January 19, 2011. All candidates for the scholarship MUST be nominated by the faculty representative at their community college or two-year institution. The deadline for nominations is January 26, 2011. The list of faculty representatives and a link to the online application are available on the Foundation website, http://www.jkcf.org/.
