Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Scholarship (ID 1270)
- Start Date:
- The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship honors excellence by supporting outstanding community college students with financial need to transfer to and complete their bachelor’s degrees at the nation’s top four-year colleges and universities.
The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s 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 $30,000 per year to each of approximately 50 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.

- Contact Notes:
- Please note that your questions regarding the scholarship should be directed to the JKC Foundation, not RCC's Faculty Representative.
RCC's Faculty Representative asks that you have two RCC staff members email a letter of recommendation for you to her using their RCC email account by the 11/26/12 deadline so that their input can be included in the selection of nominees. The subject line of their recommendation should state "JACK KENT COOKE RECOMMENDATION" and the body of the email should list your full name, RCC ID and any relavent information that would assist the committee in making our selection.
Failure to meet the deadline or follow instructions could result in not being nominated.
- To be eligible for the program, students must be nominated by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Faculty Representative at their two-year institution.
In order to be nominated, you must submit a complete application (the only item allowed to be missing is RCC's recommendation) to the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation website by November 26, 2012 (even though their indicated deadline is December 5, 2012). Once you have sumbited your application, RCC's faculty representative will access the application on the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation website and proceed as follows:
Only 3 student's can be recommended. If there are 3 or less applications that qualify, they will be recommended. If there are more than 3, the applications will be reviewed by a committee and the top three chosen for nomination.
The only reason you would need to contact RCC's faculty representative is to email the names of 2 RCC staff who know you in order to aid your recommendation.
- Special Criteria:
- A review panel of distinguished university faculty and admissions professionals judge the nominees using criteria including academic achievement and critical thinking ability, financial need, will to succeed, and breadth of interest and activities.
