Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship

Featured imageDear Students,

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 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.

The application period is open now until December 2, 2014. Applications materials, eligibility requirements, deadlines and other important details are found at this website: http://www.jkcf.org/scholarship-programs/undergraduate-transfer/.
