Cooke Outreach Representative Program (CORP)
The Cooke Outreach Representative Program (CORP) provides Cooke Scholars and Alumni the opportunity to assist the Cooke Foundation’s outreach efforts to potential applicants to its scholarship programs. CORP members may visit middle schools, high schools, community colleges, and other education entities (e.g. nonprofits, community based organizations) to present information to students and educators regarding the Foundation’s scholarship programs.
