This year we are celebrating the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s 16th anniversary of providing among the largest scholarships in the country to students with enormous talent but limited financial means, fulfilling Jack Kent Cooke’s inspiring vision. Nearly 2,200 students have received Cooke Scholarships and thousands more have benefited from programs we have funded through grants, thanks to the Founder’s generosity. Many more will benefit far into the future.
The Cooke Foundation is challenging the obstacles facing high achieving, low-income students by educating the public, awarding prizes, making grants to other organizations with similar missions, and conducting high-visibility research. For the first time, we have compiled updates on these various commitments and profiles of some of our talented Cooke Scholars to share with you.
