The Cooke Foundation has opened the application period for its Young Scholars Program, a high school scholarship and advising program for high-performing 7th grade students with financial need. Each year, approximately 50 students are selected from a pool of more than 2,000 applicants to participate in the five-year program, starting in 8th grade through high school graduation. Those selected receive academic and college advising, as well as financial support for school, Cooke-sponsored summer programming, peer community engagement, and other learning enrichment opportunities. To be eligible for the Young Scholars Program, a student must: 1) currently be in 7th grade, 2) earn grades of all or mostly As with no Cs in core academic subjects during 6th and 7th grade, 3) have a family adjusted gross income of less than $95,000, and 4) be willing to participate in required multi-week residential summer programs. More information about the Cooke Young Scholars Program, including instructions on how to apply and a video featuring scholars, can be found here.
