The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation is the largest scholarship granting foundation in the country and if your grade point average is 3.5 or better, they want to hear from you.
Based on financial need, awards of up to $40,000 a year are available to outstanding community college students who are transferring to a four-year college or university. Subsequent awards are also available to those pursuing graduate degrees.
