Students May Now Apply for the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship

Monday, October 18, 2021

Now is the time to encourage your students to apply for the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship. The scholarship provides generous awards to high-performing community college students who transfer to four-year institutions for bachelor’s degrees. 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 they may receive. This highly competitive scholarship includes up to $55,000 per year to attend a four-year accredited undergraduate school, the ability to pursue any area of study, personal advising about selecting a college and navigating financial aid and multifaceted advising about how to transition to a four-year college and maximize the student experience.

Scholarship recipients are selected from a nationwide applicant pool each year. As minimum criteria, students must:

  • Be a current student at an accredited U.S. community college or two-year institution with sophomore status, or a recent graduate (within the last five years).
  • Intend to enroll full-time in an accredited four-year college or university in fall 2022.
  • Earn a cumulative unweighted GPA of 3.5 in college.
  • Demonstrate financial need. Applicants with family income up to $95,000 will be considered.
