Are you a high school senior, college student, and/or between the ages of 18-25 pursuing studies at a vocational or trade school? If so, you may be eligible for the Shawn Carter Scholarship.
The Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation is a one-of-kind award that offers grants to single mothers, children who attend alternative schools, students who have earned a GED, students with grade point averages of 2.0 and students who have previously been incarcerated, etc., but aspire to be college bound or to gain a higher education.
One of the leading questions asked by the Foundation when students apply for the scholarship is: What are your plans to give back to the community?
