Jack Cooke Kent Foundation Scholarship

Jack Kent Cooke scholarship open to WVC students and recent alumni

Students and recent alumni of Wenatchee Valley College and other national community colleges may be eligible for the Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship Program endowed by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation. Completed applications must be turned in to Sandy Cooprider at his office in Smith Gymnasium on the Wenatchee Campus no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 20.

The application materials are available online at www.jkcf.org.

The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation scholarships can provide funding for tuition, room and board, required fees, and books for the duration of the undergraduate degree, generally two years. Each award can total up to $30,000 annually, though the amounts vary based on the cost of the institution each recipient attends.

In 2010, the foundation plans to award 30 scholarships that students may be able to renew based upon their university performance. Current students are eligible, as well as alumni who earned a degree from a community college or two-year institution since spring 2005 and have not since transferred to a four-year college. Candidates for the scholarship must be nominated by the faculty representative at WVC.

WVC graduate Laura Cruikshank received the award in 2004 and used the scholarship to attend the University of Washington.
