Jack Kent Cooke Foundation scholarship deadline approaching

The Weatherford College Financial Aid office is accepting applications for the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation scholarship through Nov. 7.

The scholarship, through the privately-funded Cooke Foundation based in Virginia, will award up to $30,000 per recipient to help students and recent alumni from community and two-year institutions pursue a four-year degree at an accredited college in the United States and/or abroad.

The Foundation will award approximately 75 scholarships through the Undergraduate Transfer Jack Kent Cooke Scholars initiative in spring 2013. The amount and duration of the scholarships will vary by student based on the cost of attendance or grants received, but the awards can total up to $30,000 per year for each student.

The scholars are selected by the Foundation with assistance from a national panel of experts. Selection criteria include academic excellence, unmet financial need, will to succeed, leadership ability, service to others and interest in or appreciation for the arts.

Current students who will have achieved sophomore status by Dec. 31, 2013, are eligible, as are alumni who earned a degree from a community college or two-year institution since spring 2008 and have not since transferred to a four-year college. A minimum 3.5 GPA is required.

For more information about the scholarship application and selection process, contact Dr. William Smith at 817-598-6428 or wsmith@wc.edu. Application materials are available at www.jkcf.org.
