Supporting students young and old.

The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation sponsors multiple scholarship programs that provide financial assistance and educational support to students as young as 7th grade and as advanced as graduate school who demonstrate financial need and academic excellence. In 2009, the Foundation awarded more than 680 scholarships totaling close to 12 million dollars to students across the United States and in more than 30 countries. Some awards offer up to $50,000 per year! 

Is you name scholarship-worthy?
Some colleges and universities administer “named” scholarships, often established by alumni. For example, Catholic students at Loyola University in Chicago whose last name is Zolp are eligible for the Zolp Scholarship, which provides full tuition for four years. Other valuable names include Scarpinato (Texas A&M); Gatling or Gatlin (North Carolina State University) and Baxendale, Hudson, Thayer, Downer or Bright (Harvard University).
