Dear Colleague,

 

The 2013 application for the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Young Scholars Program, one of the most generous awards for outstanding seventh-grade students, will open on January 17.

 

Those selected receive financial support for educational and extracurricular activities, as well as one-on-one help applying to high schools, colleges, summer programs, and more. Young Scholars tell their advisor what they’d like to become. Over the next five years the Foundation uses its considerable resources to help them get there.

 

Students with exemplary academic records and substantial financial need are encouraged to apply at http://www.jkcf.org/scholarships/young-scholars-program/how-to-apply/.

 

Free webinars, online presentations covering the ins and outs of the application process, will be held on Thursday, January 10 and Thursday, January 24 at 7 p.m. Eastern Time. Educators, parents, students, and other interested adults can register for either session by going to http://cty.jhu.edu/talent/events/webinar.html.

 

Anyone with questions should feel free to contact outreach coordinator Lionel Foster by phone (410-735-6270) or email ([log in to unmask]).

 

This is a tremendous opportunity. Thanks for spreading the word, and please share this email, including the message below, with people and groups who can encourage eligible students to apply.

 

Sincerely,

 

Lionel Foster

The application for the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Young Scholars Program, one of the most generous scholarships for seventh-grade students in the country, opens in January. Applicants must:

 

§  Be in seventh grade at the time they apply or going into eighth grade in the fall of 2013.

§  Earn grades of all or mostly A’s, with no C’s or below in their core academic subjects since sixth grade. (Some exceptions have been made for students with unique talents or documented learning differences.)

§  Have significant unmet financial need. The average family income of previous winners is approximately $26,000 and the vast majority of families make $60,000 or less.

§  Attend school in the United States.

 

Those selected receive financial support for educational and extracurricular activities, as well as one-on-one help applying to high schools, colleges, summer programs, and more. Winners tell their advisor what they’d like to become. Over the next five years the Foundation uses its resources to help them get there.
