CCBC student named Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholar
May 13, 2023The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation has named Joseph Linsenmeyer a recipient of the Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship. Linsenmeyer, a member of the CCBC Honors Program and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, will graduate from CCBC in June with an associate degree in General Studies. He has maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout his time at CCBC.
The highly competitive national scholarship, given to only 60 community college students across the country, aims for scholars to complete their undergraduate educations with as little debt as possible. The award, which is last dollar funding after all institutional aid, can be as much as $55,000 a year toward tuition, living expenses, books and required fees. Additionally, Cooke Scholars are welcomed into the thriving Cooke community and network, receive comprehensive educational and career advising and are eligible for internship and graduate school funding from the Foundation.
Linsenmeyer has been accepted to Johns Hopkins University, where he also received a large institutional scholarship. He plans to major in History, with a concentration in Early American History. His goal is to earn a Ph. D. and become a college professor.
