JKC Young Scholars Program

Application Open January 11, 2021 – March 22, 2021

The Program Experience

The Cooke Young Scholars Program is a selective five-year, pre-college scholarship for high-performing 7th grade students with financial need.

Educational advisers help Cooke Young Scholars maximize the high school experience and prepare to thrive at the nation’s top-performing colleges.

Our programming and support includes:

  • Identifying an appropriately rigorous high school.
  • Engaging in four-year planning and goal-setting.
  • Funding for academic and extracurricular opportunities, such as music and art lessons; supplemental academic classes; and technology.
  • Annual summer programs, including two required Cooke Young Scholar events.
  • Year-round interaction and networking with a community of high-achieving peers
