Monday, April 22, 2013 – Simbarashe Change, one of Tacoma Community College’s stellar international students, has been selected to receive a Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship. Simbarashe is one of 73 scholars selected from around the country to receive the award this year. 

The scholarship will pay up to $30,000 per year. It is designed to cover the final two to three years necessary to achieve a bachelor’s degree. Awards vary by individual, based on the cost of tuition as well as other grants or scholarships he or she may receive.

Simbarashe serves in student government and in 2012 was selected as the outstanding international student of the year. He hopes to transfer to Stanford University, University of Southern California or New York University to study economics. His long-term plan includes pursuing a master’s of business administration and a law degree so he can start his own securities firm, with the goal to help children in his native country of Zimbabwe.

The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship is a generous scholarship for the nation’s top community college students to complete their bachelor’s degrees at four-year colleges or universities. The Foundation provides up to $30,000 per year, making it the largest private scholarship for two-year and community college transfer students in the country.
