Jack Kent Cooke Foundation A businessman, philanthropist, and patron of the arts, Jack Kent Cooke was a well-rounded person who dropped out of high school despite a college scholarship which he could not take because he had to support his family. He made several fortunes in the U.S., eventually owning media companies, a portfolio of real estate, and sports franchises in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation has offered three scholarship programs: 1) Young Scholars Program for high school students; 2) Undergraduate Transfer Scholarships for community college graduates to earn four-year degrees; and 3) Graduate Scholarships . To be eligible for any of these Jack Kent Cooke Scholarships, students must demonstrate unmet financial need . See the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation website for current information: www.jkcf.org

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
