The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation in Lansdowne, Virginia, has announced scholarships to ninety community college students who will use the funds to transfer to four-year colleges and complete their bachelor's degree.
The foundation's Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship program provides exceptional community college students with a scholarship valued at up to $40,000 annually over three years. Scholars are selected based on their academic ability and achievements, persistence, leadership, and financial need. Now in its fourteenth year, the scholarship program is a gateway to the foundation’s graduate scholarship program and its new Oxford and Cambridge scholarships.
"Community colleges hold some of best untapped talent in the nation, but often these students need financial resources, guidance, and support in order to take the next step and earn bachelor's, master's, or doctoral degrees," said JKCF executive director Harold O. Levy. "The Cooke Foundation has always been committed to identifying the best of the best in community colleges across the country, and this year we have an extraordinary group."
