A total of 51 Phi Theta Kappa members are among the 60 recipients of 2011 Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarships, the nation's largest private scholarship program.

The Foundation will provide each student a scholarship worth up to $30,000 a year for up to three years, which will allow them to transfer to four-year colleges and universities and complete their undergraduate degrees.

"Students who engage in Phi Theta Kappa programs gain immeasurably from the experience and are recognized for their achievements by prestigious scholarship providers like the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation. Consistently, the majority of scholarship recipients are engaged Phi Theta Kappa members. We value the strong working relationship that Phi Theta Kappa has for many years shared with the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation in providing our members access to selective senior colleges," said Dr. Rod A. Risley, Phi Theta Kappa Executive Director.
