THE JKCF COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation College (JKCF) Scholarship Program rewards excellence by supporting high-achieving high school seniors with financial need who seek to attend the nation's best four year colleges and universities. 

Only open to SENIORS in high school.

To be eligible for the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation College Scholarship Program, applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Senior standing – Plan to graduate from a U.S. high school in spring.
  • Fall College Enrollment – Intend to enroll in an accredited four-year college beginning in fall.
  • GPA – Earn a cumulative unweighted GPA of 3.5 or above.
  • Test Scores – Receive standardized test scores in the top 15%: SAT combined critical reading and math score of 1200 or above and/or ACT composite score of 26 or above.
  • Income – Demonstrate significant unmet financial need. We will consider applicants with family income up to $95,000. However, we anticipate that a majority of scholarship recipients will be eligible to receive a Pell grant.
