After several years of reaching out and helping students who cannot afford their financial needs specially entering their college, masters and even PhD courses. The foundation created with several scholarships they offer. As per John Crook Foundation quoted , going to university is about more than getting a degree; it inspires them to pursue new avenues of intellectual inquiry and ignites a passion for subjects which they had never thought about studying before. The John Crook Scholarship offers students the opportunity to take this further by studying for a second, two-year degree at St John’s College, Cambridge. The John Crook Scholar will be admitted to St John’s College to study for either a second two-year Bachelor’s Degree as an affiliated student, for an MPhil or for the Degree of Master of Advanced Studies in mathematics or science.
