Jack Kent Cooke Scholarship

This $30,000 scholarship has a deadline in the next week or so. If you qualify, you need to apply immediately. I'll be back on campus on Thursday, January 6th.


If you haven't already completed your FAFSA application, now is the time to do it. Don't assume that you don't qualify, but even if you don't, you need to apply. Just about all of the scholarships require your SAR (student aid report) which is generated from the FAFSA.

Don't let the lack of money prevent you from attending college. Financial aid is available to a great percentage of students.

Go to the College of the Desert website then click "financial". You should download the application worksheet to be sure that you have all of the required information to complete the form. You will be submitting it electronically--it is faster and 14%more accurate.

You will need to apply every year.
