This highly competitive national transfer scholarship is the largest such scholarship for community college students in the country, and provides its students with up to $55,000/year for 3 years to complete their Bachelor’s degree. It does not have any U.S. citizenship or residency requirement. The application deadline is January 11, 2024.

To be eligible for the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship, at a minimum, applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Demonstrate unmet financial need – We will consider applicants with a maximum annual gross income of $95,000. During the selection process, the Foundation will conduct a full financial review which will take into account all income and assets of the student and the student’s parents.
  • No previous enrollment or attendance at a four-year institution – Students who have attended a four-year institution in the past are not eligible for this scholarship.
  • If you started at a four-year institution, but did not complete a semester of full-time study, then you may be eligible. Please contact us to verify your eligibility.
  • Students who have already transferred to a four-year institution or plan to transfer to start during the spring 2023 semester are also not eligible for this scholarship.

If you meet these requirements and are applying for this scholarship please attend this event.
