February 7, 2004
Dr. Tamara Daily, associate professor of psychology at Mount Union College, has been appointed as the Mount Union faculty representative to the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, which runs one of the country's most competitive private scholarship programs.
Daily joined the staff of Mount Union College in 1993. She earned her bachelor's degree from Ohio Wesleyan University and her master's and Ph.D. from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation is a private, independent foundation established in 2000 by the estate of Jack Kent Cooke to help young people of exceptional promise reach their full potential through education, focusing in particular on individuals with financial need.
The Foundation has opened its graduate scholarship program to graduating seniors and recent alumni from any accredited college or university in the U.S. College seniors at more than 2,000 accredited institutions in America, and alumni who have graduated from those institutions since May 1999, may compete for the scholarships, which can total as much as $50,000 per year for up to six years.
The Foundation plans to award as many as 35 scholarships in summer of 2004 for use during the 2004-2005 academic year, and will renew each award in subsequent years based on performance. Candidates for the scholarship must be nominated by the faculty representative at their undergraduate institution. The list of faculty representatives and application materials are available on the Foundation's website, www.jackkentcookefoundation.org, or by calling 1-800-498-6478.
