The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Graduate Scholarship Program, which is one of the country’s most competitive private scholarship programs, has opened its applications to include graduating seniors and recent alumni from any of the 2,000 accredited colleges or universities in the United States.
Scholarships can total as much as $50,000 per year for up to six years. The JKC Foundation plans to award as many as 35 scholarships in July of 2004 for use during the 2004-2005 academic year and will renew the award in subsequent years based on performance. Recipients may use the award at any accredited university. A panel of national experts will assist the Foundation in selecting scholars. Candidates for the scholarship must be nominated by the faculty representative at their undergraduate institution.
The faculty representative for Frostburg State University is Dr. Ann Bristow. She can be reached at 301-687-4446 or email@example.com. The local deadline for submission to the FSU representative is Monday, March 29, 2004.
