The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation College Scholarship Program is one of the most generous and competitive scholarship programs in the nation. This undergraduate scholarship program is available to high-achieving high school seniors with financial need who seek to attend and graduate from the nation’s top four-year colleges and universities. Each College Scholar will receive up to $40,000 per year for four years of study and is then automatically eligible to apply for the Cooke Graduate Scholarship. The college scholarship just means the world Just thinking about what higher education means in America now college is stressful enough and thinking about how expensive it is and how inaccessible it is having to not deal with that has made the experience a lot better it’s really been a blessing because it’s been the safety for me to pursue my academic interests without having to think about limitations now I can potentially be debt-free out of law school as well just means a lot. As part of the program students are assigned an on-staff educational advisor this personalized and multifaceted advising includes transitioning into college and maximizing the college scholar experience in addition scholars have access to summer internship stipends and funds to study abroad. Parts of the program like that allow you to really take advantage of exploration I’ve always wanted to do more but I haven’t had the resources available the foundation has brought me to new environments, new challenges things that I never thought I’d even be remotely interested in The Foundation has opened so many doors for me and made me realize my own potential to push myself and to become a better person suddenly I had this path before me that was actually possible where before the gate had been closed. Scholars are also welcomed into the thriving community of Cooke Scholars The scholar community is just like basically another family that we have you meet so many people with similar passions I’ve made so many friendships and you meet people who have different passions but are so cool it doesn’t matter if you talk to them once or 500 times there’s a lot of different people here that I can turn to in terms of asking questions or wanting to learn from them to have a community of people who celebrate you in every single way who love you, who are invested in you and who are just so cool it’s like the best thing in the world.
