Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Young Scholars Program

The Young Scholars Program, a selective 5-year pre-college scholarship for high-performing middle school students with financial need, is the largest scholarship of its kind in the nation. It provides individualized academic advising, financial support, and a pathway to the foundation’s $40,000 per year College Scholarship. 

Each year, the Cooke Foundation selects Young Scholars from a nationwide applicant pool based on
• High academic ability and achievement

• Demonstrated financial need

• Drive and persistence

• Leadership

• Desire to help others

Young Scholars come from all racial and ethnic backgrounds and from rural, suburban, and urban communities throughout the United States. Many Young Scholars are the first in their family to pursue college education.
