- Scholarship Description
- 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 selective four-year college or university. The Foundation provides up to $40,000 per year to each of approximately 85 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.
-Be a current student at an accredited U.S. community college or two-year institution with sophomore status or a recent graduate
-Plan to enroll full-time in a baccalaureate program at an accredited college or university in fall
-Have a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or better
-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
