Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s Graduate Arts Award

December 10, 2012


To be eligible to compete for the Jack Kent Cooke Graduate Arts Award, a candidate must have:

  • Senior standing or have graduated from an accredited four year US college or university within the past five years.
  • A cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.2 or better.
  • Demonstrated financial need.
  • A bachelor’s degree by the start of the Fall 2013 semester.
  • Plans to begin their first graduate degree program in the performing arts, visual arts, or creative writing at an accredited college or university in fall of 2013.
  • Not have been previously nominated for the award.


The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s Graduate Arts Award enables students or recent alumni with exceptional artistic or creative promise and financial need to pursue up to three years of study at an accredited graduate institution in the US or abroad.  Awards can be as much as $50,000 annually.  In 2013, the Foundation will select up to 15 recipients for this award.

The award provides funding for tuition, room and board, required fees, and books.  Scholarship amounts vary based on several factors, including cost at the institution each recipient attends and other grants and scholarships the student receives.


Late November and February, contact your faculty representative or ask your school to nominate one if you do not have one already.
