Jack Kent Cooke Scholarships Available!

Scholarships available for 7th graders via the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation.

The Foundation is a private, independent foundation established by Jack Kent Cooke to help exceptionally promising students reach their full potential through education. Launched in 2000, the Foundation focuses in particular on students with financial need. The Foundation's scholarship and direct service programs support the education of approximately 650 remarkable students each year, while their grantmaking allows thousands more to engage in challenging educational experiences.

Cooke owned the Washington Redskins and the LA Lakers. He died in 1997, leaving the bulk of his fortune to establish the Foundation, his life’s legacy.

His advice to young people remains the driving force behind the Foundation’s mission: “Destiny demands you do better than your supposed best.”
