Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s Dissertation Fellowship

The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s Dissertation Fellowship deadline is quickly approaching on February 4, 2011. The Foundation is awarding two Fellowships of $25,000 to support advanced doctoral candidates whose research contributes to the understanding of the educational experiences and pathways of high-achieving, low-income students.

Please note that although the dissertation topic concerns education and human potential, graduate study may be in a diverse range of academic disciplines. Although applicants must be candidates for a doctoral degree at a graduate school in the United States, they need not be US citizens.

Links to the application requirements and guidelines are posted on our website. Recipients will be notified in May 2011. Please visit our website for more information about the Fellowship. Questions can be directed to or via phone at 703-723-8000
