The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation is accepting nominations for its Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship Program, the largest scholarship offered to two-year college students in the United States. Recipients receive up to $30,000 per year to offset education and living expenses at an accredited four-year institution.
Scholarships are available to Seminole State students wishing to transfer to a four-year college or university. To be considered, candidates must be nominated by the College's faculty representative and:
- Be a current Seminole State student with sophomore status
- Have a 3.5 cumulative GPA or higher
- Have a significant unmet financial need
- Plan to enroll full time in a baccalaureate program at an accredited college or university in Fall 2013
The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation was established in 2000 to promote education and help young people reach their full potential. Through the Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship Program, the Foundation awards approximately 60 scholarships per year to deserving students.
Since 2006, Seminole State has had seven consecutive Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship winners: Lalita Booth, Isa Adney, Sarah Holland, Sally Rodriguez, Tatiana Viecco, Daniel Leon and Charles Bilyue. The College is the only school in the nation with seven winners since 2006.
