The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation recently engaged in a strategic planning process, out of which the Board of Directors determined that the Foundation’s primary objective shall be focused on college access and success for exceptional students with financial need. Concurrently, it determined that greater progress could be made toward this objective with more concentrated focus of resources. As a result, the Board of Directors decided to reduce the number of scholarships the Foundation offers by ending two graduate scholarship programs – the Graduate Arts Award and the Dissertation Fellowship. The last cohort for each program was selected in the spring 2014.
