Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship
The Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship is a highly selective scholarship for the nation’s top community college students seeking to complete their bachelor’s degrees at four-year colleges or universities. Each Cooke Scholar has access to generous financial support for two to three years, college planning support, ongoing advising, and the opportunity to connect with the thriving community of fellow Scholars.
Daniel Alejandro Leon-Davis, a 2011 Jack Kent Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholar, is co-founder of both The Soze Agency and Immigrant Heritage Month.
His work with Immigrant Heritage Month fueled the "I Am An Immigrant" campaign in 2016, which celebrates and sheds light on the beneficial contributions that immigrants make to the United States. The campaign has gained national attention and shared the stories of many immigrants with unique voices and backgrounds.
