The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Young Scholars Program supports hundreds of high-achieving students with financial need across the United States. The Foundation is currently looking for 7th graders who value academic excellence, determination, leadership, and public service to apply for the Jack Kent Cooke Young Scholars Program.

Applicants must have demonstrated financial need -- typically, a family income below $60,000. Up to 75 students will be selected across the nation in 2010. Applications become available on the Foundation Web site in January 2010 and are due Monday, April 26, 2010. More information is available at the Jack Kent Cook Foundation website.

Young Scholars receive funding to participate in academic summer programs, extracurricular lessons, distance learning courses, and other enrichment opportunities. Throughout their time in the program, Scholars work closely with an educational adviser who helps them plan an academic and talent development path to prepare them to enter top universities. Most Young Scholars receive a college scholarship from the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation.
