Jack Kent Cooke College Scholarship Opportunity

The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation has partnered with the College Board to increase scholarship opportunities for students who've taken the PSAT/NMSQT® and PSAT™ 10.

Scholarships can open doors for students who aspire to go to college but don't have the funds. The Cooke Foundation provides one of the largest scholarships in the country for high-achieving students with financial need.

Did you know?

More than half (54%) of the students who won the Jack Kent Cooke College Scholarship last year took the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10 and were discovered through Student Search Service®.

The Cooke College Scholarship seeks out underrepresented students of all races, backgrounds, and ethnicities through the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10.

    DISTRACTED DRIVING ESSAY PROGRAM APPLY TODAY

     It is a scholarship that looks at the impact of distracted driving and explores ways to address this growing problem.

    In order to apply, students must submit an essay on the topic.

    You can view the scholarship here: www.mkhlawyers.com/scholarship

    Texting and driving poses a serious safety hazard for young drivers in across the United States. To spread the message about the dangers of texting and driving, Morris, King & Hodge, P.C. is sponsoring the 3rd Annual Driver Safety Scholarship program. Our law firm will award three scholarships to 2019 graduating seniors and/or rising freshmen in Alabama colleges and universities who create an original essay explaining the dangers of texting and driving and practical steps to ending this momentous problem.

    Sending text messages takes drivers' eyes off the road, their hands off the wheel and their mind off the task of driving and remaining alert for oncoming traffic. What can we do as a community to convey to young drivers that texting and driving leads to serious and avoidable accidents? We're confident our young people have some good ideas.

    To enter the program, you'll need to submit an essay with at least 1000 words. We're seeking clever, well-researched ideas that offer a fresh take on the dangers of texting and driving. The tone can be light-hearted or serious, as long as it's informative, helpful and original.

    The deadline for submitting entries is April 12, 2019.

    As a law firm active in Huntsville, Alabama, Morris, King & Hodge, P.C. is dedicated to making our state a safer place to live and raise families. We recognize our young people are our communities' most precious resource. We are committed to helping students across the country receive a college education to pursue their career goals.

    We wish you the best of luck and look forward to receiving your scholarship program entries.

    College Board Scholarships

    Dear Member,
    I'm thrilled to introduce the College Board Opportunity Scholarships, a $25 million commitment to encourage more students to take the steps necessary to get into college. This first-of-its-kind national scholarship program lays out six simple steps that all students can take to get into college. Students have the chance to earn scholarships when they:
    1.
    Build their college list.
    2.
    Practice for the SAT®.
    3.
    Improve their SAT score.
    4.
    Strengthen their college list.
    5.
    Fill out the FAFSA.
    6.
    Apply to college.
    We hear from students and families across the country that getting into college is an overwhelming and complicated process. They're hungry for a simple guide that tells them what to do and when to do it. The six steps highlighted by College Board Opportunity Scholarships help students plan by making a good starter list of schools, prepare so they can take their best shot at getting in, and pay for college by earning scholarships and applying for financial aid.
    Beginning with the class of 2020, we'll be awarding scholarships ranging from $500 to $40,000.

    This isn't your typical scholarship program. It doesn't require an essay or an application, and it doesn't have a minimum GPA or SAT score requirement. The College Board Opportunity Scholarships are different. The program is open to all students who attend high school in the United States, Puerto Rico, and other U.S. territories.
    The College Board Opportunity Scholarships were designed to save counselors time by providing simple guidance to all kids. By taking each step, students can show college admission officers their resourcefulness and grit beyond test scores alone, while being rewarded along the way.

    Our message today to all students, not just those at the front of the class, is that they can be a scholar and that they can go to college. We're asking all students to step up no matter where they stand, no matter where they've been.

    Students can begin today by signing up on our site. The first step is to make a starter list of six colleges they want to attend. Just by making that list, they earn a chance for a $500 scholarship.

    I hope you'll share this email with friends and colleagues—we're eager to reach as many students as we can. Visit the College Board Opportunity Scholarships website for detailed information and additional resources.

    Thank you for your continued support and partnership as we clear a path for all students to own their future.
    Sincerely,

    David Coleman
    President and CEO of the College Board
