Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate University Transfer Scholarship

In the spring of 2014, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation will award approximately 75 scholarships to help students with exceptional promise and demonstrated financial need earn a baccalaureate degree from a four-year college. The amount and duration of awards vary by student based on the cost of attendance and the length of the program as well as other scholarships or grants received. The maximum available per student is $30,000 per year. This is the largest scholarship offered in the United States to community college university transfer students.
