Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Dissertation Fellowship Award supports advanced doctoral candidates completing dissertations that further the understanding of the educational pathways and experiences of high-achieving, low-income students. In 2014, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation will award six fellowships of up to $25,000.

Applicants must have successfully completed all pre-dissertation requirements, including defense of their dissertation proposals, and be candidates for a doctoral degree at a graduate school in the United States, though they need not be U.S. citizens. The applicants’ graduate study may be in a diverse range of academic disciplines (e.g., policy studies, economics, psychology, education) but their topic must be tied to the Foundation’s mission of advancing the education of exceptionally promising students with financial need.
