This is partially to share my great news with everybody on the forum (since I got lots of help from you all by lurking all summer) and to let everyone know who's applying next year about this awesome scholarship. It's the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation scholarship, which pays full tuition plus fees plus a stipid for living expenses. This year was the first year and it was only available to those who had any connection to the Maryland, Virginia, DC area (I qualified by going to undergrad at JHU), but they are hoping to expand nationwide and international maybe as early as next year. It's available to anyone going into any graduate program, and covers all four years. This year they awarded fifty and all I have to do is stay in good standing and attend some weekend retreat at the end of July. Not bad, huh?
