The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation

The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation is a private, independent foundation established by Jack Kent Cooke to help exceptionally promising students reach their full potential through education. In particular, the Foundation focuses on students with financial need. The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s Young Scholars Program was founded on the idea that if you give high-achieving students with financial need the guidance and resources necessary for them to excel during high school, college, and beyond, their greatness will emerge.

The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers

The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers identifies teenagers with exceptional artistic and literary talent and brings their remarkable work to a national audience through The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. The Awards have an impressive legacy dating back to 1923 and a noteworthy roster of past winners including Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford and Joyce Carol Oates.

The Sunflower County Freedom Project

Inspired by the “freedom schools” of the civil rights movement, The Sunflower County Freedom Project offers academic enrichment, cultural activities, and leadership development to promising students of Sunflower County, Mississippi. Despite it’s cheery name, Sunflower County has a median family income that is roughly half the national average and an unemployment rate almost double the national average. Compounding these problems is the difficult truth that the area continues to be one of the most racially segregated and racially charged regions in the United States.
