The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation is offering students the opportunity to apply for its Young Scholars Program.Â
As the manager of community outreach for the Center for Talent Development at Northwestern University, I want to make sure as many teachers, groups, organizations, individuals, and parents as possible become aware of this opportunity. The Foundation provides exceptional students with individualized educational guidance and educational services, which could include tutors, summer programs, on-line classes, computers, and tuition throughout high school.
The Young Scholars Program is highly competitive and attracts outstanding applicants from across the United States.Â
The program is open to current 7th grade students with a strong academic record, awards/honors andÂ teacher recommendations who demonstrate financial need, motivation, leadership amd an appreciation for the arts, music, literature, or similar fields
Application materials are availableÂ now on the Foundation's website along with more information about the foundation itself.Â Candidates must submit their completed application by May 7.
