National Award for Outstanding Seventh-Graders

Published November 30, 2010

Each year, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Young Scholars Program honors 50 to 75 seventh-graders who can demonstrate outstanding academic ability, accomplishments outside of the classroom, and significant financial need. The award is extremely competitive, but those selected receive financial support for educational and extracurricular activities, as well as one-on-one help applying to high schools, colleges, summer programs, and more. Please spread the word to any educators, families, or organizations that might be interested. 2011 applications will be available in mid-January online and are due in April. Anyone with questions should feel free to contact the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth at 410-735-6270 or
