$30,000 transfer scholarship available

Hagerstown Community College recently announced that the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation will award student scholarships through its Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship Program, which is geared towards helping community college students and recent alumni transfer from two-year institutions to four-year colleges and universities to pursue higher education degrees.

The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation scholarships can provide funding for tuition, room and board, required fees, and books for the length of the undergraduate degree, which typically lasts two years. Each award can total up to $30,000 annually, though the amounts will vary depending on which institution the recipient attends.

The Foundation plans to award approximately 30 scholarships through the program in spring 2010. The Foundation will renew awards each year based upon student performance. Current HCC students are eligible, as are alumni who have earned a degree from HCC since spring 2005 and have not yet transferred to a four-year college.

The application deadline is Jan. 12, 2010. All scholarship candidates must be nominated by an HCC faculty representative. For more information, contact Britney Carter, student financial aid counselor, at 301-790-2800, ext. 605, or via e-mail at For application materials, go to
