For the demonstrating financial aid, are we able to use the parent (family income) who isn't the one who claims us on taxes in order to meet this requirement?
Sarah Schwab
59:33
I believe that JKCF takes into account you and your parents income to calculate financial need if you are over 24 or are an emancipated minor contact scholarships@jkcf.org for further information on your specific question
An Ha
01:01:48
The activities section is confusing me
Sarah Schwab
01:02:45
Also, I think you need to use the info from the parent that claims you on their taxes as a dependent but I would contact scholarships@jkcf.org
An Ha
01:03:20
There are 3 areas to discuss your activities:1. Common App Activities Section2. JKC App Activities Section3. Resume JKC is asking you to submit
An Ha
01:03:39
I am wondering if I need to do that much work to repeat the same info
Sarah Schwab
01:03:51
I believe that the only thing that matters is the JKC activities section
Sarah Schwab
01:04:52
Common app specific things would be for applying to common app colleges
An Ha
01:06:08
Did you all fill that common app activities in the past?
An Ha
01:06:22
I don’t want to risk not having consistent information
Risa Shirai (she/her)
01:08:45
Would the recommendation letter be the same with transfer application if I use common app to applying to transfer as well?
danielle
01:09:14
Will this ppt be available to us?
Delores Loedel
01:09:51
yes, we will ask Myriam Moody to send out the recording and powerpoint to everyone
Ava Davari
01:09:59
An, I first put all the activities I did in my resume and used my resume as a key to write in the same info on the common app and JKC activities section. Does this make sense? I did have a lot of repeating info which is okay.
danielle
01:10:14
thank you
Jazmine Renteria
01:10:30
Would letters of recommendation be attached to the resume portion?
An Ha
01:12:18
Im on the common app for JKC, there isnt a space for me to list my activities within the JKC app but it does have a statement asking me to fill my activities in the common app of experiences and achievements section
An Ha
01:12:29
I guess they updated?
Li Wan
01:13:16
NOW in the JCK only have resume part. the activities and work experiences in the common app.
Ava Davari
01:14:15
Risa, make sure that whoever you select to write your letter of recommendation for JKC knows that the letter is for JKC and your common app. The foundation wants to see a letter that really describes who you are. It is best when you tell the professor that JKC wants to see how you performed in the course and who you are as a person which can be a little more detailed than a typical letter of recommendation.
Li Wan
01:14:26
Parent/Guardian InformationYou may have already been prompted to complete the Parent/Guardian section on your Common Application. If you are aged 30 or under, the information below is required for your Cooke Foundation application. Please ensure that you include all requested information on both of your parent(s)/guardian(s).

Do we need to provide 3 years of tax documents? or just the most recent?
Joanna Ugalde
01:15:05
Where do you submit your taxes
Delores Loedel
01:15:27
and since this is being recorded, be careful about sharing personal information
Delores Loedel
01:15:36
in your questions
Joanna Ugalde
01:16:07
If you’re over 30 yo and don’t live with your parents do you still need to submit their financial info?
Anh Tong
01:16:07
Do they have a interview when we apply? Or we just apply on common app
Sheeva Davari VP of PR
01:16:33
I think they interview you once you are selected as a semifinalist
danielle
01:16:35
if you're comfortable, and if you haven't already, can you tell us what you talked about in your essay?
Ramia Chaudhary
01:16:52
So I’m currently doing my associates and I’m in my 2nd year but I will not be graduating until spring 2024, am I still eligible to apply for this scholarship right now?
jaycee
01:16:56
if I am dependent and I didn’t file tax with my parent on 2019 and 2020, but I file tax with my parent on 2021, is that eligible?
Nhu Ho
01:17:07
About the recommendation letters, I have a mentor at my internship at an animal hospital. She is no professor, but she is still someone who teaches and supervises interns. Can I ask a letter from her?
Kristine David
01:17:13
Does it matter if the faculty member who writes your letter of rec is not actually MY teacher? For example, he teaches at my school, but I know him from another job.
Kristine David
01:18:54
Nevermind
Kristine David
01:18:55
I did
Kristine David
01:18:58
Ita ok
Kristine David
01:18:59
lol
Sarah Schwab
01:20:07
It does not matter if its not your teacher you can still get a recommendation for this person
Sarah Schwab
01:20:11

Joanna Ugalde
01:20:48
Should you add leadership about personal accomplishments?
Sarah Schwab
01:20:53
For the animal hospital, I believe it is okay but I would email scholarships@jkcf.org just to make sure
Kristine David
01:20:54

yes, we will make sure to get the recording out to all ptk members through Myriam Moody (our regional coordinator). I believe all PTK members get her emails, right? If not, ask your chapter advisor as they will receive her emails
