Our Scholars Share Favorite Benefits of the Cooke College Scholarship
It’s application season! We know that managing a calendar of deadlines for colleges, scholarships, and regular school assignments can be rigorous, especially when you’re not sure exactly what will happen after you hit the submit button.
How will a scholarship help you achieve your goals? Beyond money for tuition, are there other opportunities it can provide? Will you even care about it after expending so much effort into crafting the perfect essay?
