Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship Program

September 10, 2019 1 By Ronny Jaskolski


The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship is one of the most generous and competitive scholarship programs in the nation. It supports community college students with financial need who seek to complete their bachelor’s degrees at the nation’s top four-year colleges and universities. Each scholar will receive up to $40,000 per year for up to three years of study and is then automatically eligible to apply for the Cooke Graduate Scholarship. I never thought I would get the Jack Kent Cooke scholarship I was blown away it changed everything it’s opened this realm of possibilities and it proved to me that dreams are worth it. Students are assigned an on-staff educational advisor who guides them through their transition and helps them maximize their experience at their new school. I transferred from community college to Johns Hopkins University which is a huge change I was expecting the challenge and I was definitely like okay this would be a lot harder and I feel like having the Foundation supporting me was something huge. Scholars are also encouraged to study abroad and pursue internships. I wanted to do research and I wanted to do all these other things I went from arriving to feeling like I didn’t belong to within one year of my starting date I was working at the White House. I was the first ever undocumented intern at the Clinton Foundation I got the opportunity to study abroad this summer so being in London for the summer was just like the whole world is right there it was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had. In addition they are also welcomed into the thriving community of Cooke Scholars Being a part of the Cookie community is so awesome we are so close it’s ridiculous now you have people that you can depend on if I meet a scholar like you’re automatically family and when one of us has a problem we all rally together the resilience that’s around all of us is what makes us such a strong community despite the obstacles in our life we have taken those obstacles as an opportunity to make a greater impact in the community we live in the country we live and hopefully in the world we live in today.
