The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation grants The Jack Kent Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarships, the most generous scholarships ever offered to graduating community college students. The scholarship awards provide funding for tuition, room and board, books, and other required fees for the remainder of the Jack Kent Cooke Scholar's bachelor's degree, generally two years. Candidates for this scholarship must be nominated by their two-year institution in order to apply. The maximum available per student is $30,000 per year.
First or second year community college students planning to continue their education at a two-year institution may be nominated by their college to apply for the $1,000 Coca-Cola Two-Year Colleges Scholarship administered by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation.
Other Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Scholarship Opportunities:
Most students realize the importance of higher education and face the realization they may need help in completing this all important step of their life. Everyone has heard or said they would like to attend "x" school but the cost is too high. If that is the only reason, not your GPA or final acceptance, then it is a silly reason. I agree a big portion of your decision which institute of higher education is given to the evil of cost. It is a necessary evil but don't let the evil discourage you from attending the school of your dreams. I came across an article "The ABCs of student IOUs" by Sandra Block. Here it is in plain English.
"Grants, direct aid, work study and scholarships - these are the best because you do not have to pay the money back. Most Phi Theta Kappans are familiar with scholarships. Be sure to look into grants, direct aid, and work study - all what I term "free money." The qualification form is on htttp://www.fafsa.ed.gov. This form determines how much the family can afford to pay in college costs which determines the awarded amount to the student."
