We thought this was pretty neat. Scroll down for information on a scholarship for qualifying seventh graders.
The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Young Scholars Program is one of the most generous awards for seventh-grade students in the country. Those selected receive financial support for educational and extracurricular activities throughout high school, as well as one-on-one help applying to high schools, colleges, summer programs, and more. While this is not a Center for Talented Youth scholarship, many Young Scholars have used the award to take CTY courses, and CTY has staff available who can answer questions about the application process.
The Young Scholars Program is open to students with outstanding academic records, accomplishments outside of the classroom, and substantial financial need. Learn more at http://www.jkcf.org/scholarships/young-scholars-program/how-to-apply/. Applications are due by Thursday, March 20, 2014.
Anyone with questions should feel free to contact Bridgette Yee McIntyre at the Center for Talented Youth at 410-735-6270 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
