2013 Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Dissertation Fellowship is now accepting applications in support of advanced doctoral candidates in a variety of fields, including education and the social sciences.
The Jack Kent Cooke Dissertation Fellowship will award up to four fellowships of up to $25,000 to help advanced doctoral students who are completing dissertations that further the understanding of the educational pathways and experiences of high-achieving, low-income students.
Minimum eligibility for a Jack Kent Cooke Dissertation Fellowship includes:
• Demonstration of superior academic ability and achie vement,
• Successful completion of all pre-dissertation requirements, and
• Full-time enrollment in a U.S. graduate degree program.
Guidelines and application materials are available on the Foundation’s website: http://www.jkcf.org/scholarships/graduate-scholarships/jack-kent-cooke-dissertation-fellowship-award/.
Although applicants must be candidates for a doctoral degree at a graduate school in the United States, they need not be US citizens. Please note that the applicants' graduate study may be in a diverse range of academic disciplines (e.g., policy studies, economics, psychology, education) but their topic must be tied to the Foundation’s mission: advancing the education of exceptionally promising students who have financial need.
Students can email the Foundations directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with any inquiries.
