At the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation , we assist high-achieving, low-income students, from middle school to graduate school, in reaching their full potential through education. We are pleased to announce the creation of the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Dissertation Fellowship in support of advanced doctoral candidates in a variety of fields, including education and the social sciences. We have created the dissertation fellowships to advance our understanding of the factors and contexts that help low-income students to overcome personal adversity and challenging socioeconomic circumstances to excel academically in order to design programs and interventions that will help more low-income students identified as high-achieving in their primary and secondary school years to sustain their achievement levels through college and beyond. Please note that although the dissertation topic concerns education and human potential, graduate study may be in a diverse range of academic disciplines. Although applicants must be candidates for a doctoral degree at a graduate school in the United States, they need not be US citizens. Links to the application requirements and guidelines are posted on our website; the application and other materials must be submitted by February 4,
