JACK KENT COOKE SCHOLARSHIP
This is an unusually generous fellowship opportunity for students who have already selected and been accepted by their graduate program. It aims to assist students who would otherwise be unable to take advantage of graduate education by fully satisfying their need in all but the most expensive programs of study. Any field is supported, including the arts, humanities, social and natural sciences, engineering, business, law and medicine. Winners can attend any accredited university either in the United States or abroad. Support is renewed each year based on satisfactory progress until completion of the degree sought. Selection criteria include the following:
An unusual feature of this award is its emphasis on financial need. Nominees must file a thorough statement of their own and their parents' financial situation and include the offer of assistance that the graduate program makes to the student. The stated purpose of this policy is to permit students of high ability to undertake expensive additional training without having a crushing burden of debt on completion of the program. The Graduate Studies Advisor asks candidates for nomination to provide a brief statement of need, but full documentation is sought only as part of the final application process.
All nomination materials are available on the web site www.jackkentcookefoundation.org. Please consult them for further information. The responses to the questions are of key importance and must be prepared thoughtfully and with care. You may find suggestions in the leaflet "Proposal Writing: the Art of Persuasion." You may also consult with the Graduate Studies Advisor in Smith 333.
