Jack Kent Cooke Graduate Arts Award

The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation is pleased to announce the launching of the 2014 Jack Kent Cooke Graduate Arts Award.  The purpose of the Graduate Arts Award is to help cultivate the next generation of great artists and writers.  This award, worth up to $50,000 per year, will recognize and reward the most promising artists and writers from lower-income backgrounds.

The Graduate Arts Award enables up to 20 students with artistic and creative merit and outstanding academic achievement to pursue a graduate degree in the fine arts, performing arts, or creative writing. The recipients receive funding for tuition, room and board, required fees, and books, for the length of the graduate degree program, up to three­­­ years.

For more information please visit our website at and follow the Foundation on Twitter @TheJKCF for updates.

As a reminder, we are conducting two webinars; one for Graduate Arts applicants on October 8 and the other for faculty representatives on October 15.  Both webinars begin at 3:00 p.m. (Eastern Time).
