Young Scholars Program 

The Cooke Young Scholars Program is a selective five-year, pre-college scholarship for high performing 7th grade students with financial need. Educational advisers help Cooke Young Scholars maximize the high school experience and prepare to thrive at the nation’s top-performing colleges. 

Our programming and support includes: 
● Identifying an appropriately rigorous high school. 
● Engaging in four-year planning and goal-setting. 
● Funding for academic and extracurricular opportunities, such as music and art lessons; supplemental academic classes; and technology. 
● Annual summer programs, including two required Cooke Young Scholar events. 
● Year-round interaction and networking with a community of high-achieving peers. Young Scholars are selected from a nationwide applicant pool each year. 

Applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements: 
● Grade level – Entering 8th grade in the fall of 2019. 
● Academics – Since the beginning of 6th grade, earned grades of all or mostly A’s in school with no C’s or below in core academic subjects. 
● Testing – We require the official score report from the applicant’s state standardized testing and if available, SAT or ACT score reports. 
● Income – Demonstrate unmet financial need. We will consider applicants with family income up to $95,000. Last year’s cohort of new Young Scholars had a median family income of approximately $39,000.
