The Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund (SCSF) is inviting applications from high school seniors and undergraduate college students for the “Shawn Carter Scholarship.”
The Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund helps students advance their education by giving them the resources they need to enroll in college, pay the tuition, and successfully finish college on time. Founded by Jay-Z and his philanthropist mother, Gloria, the program focuses on helping low-income students who live in underserved areas across urban America.
The SCSF provides individual scholarships paid directly to the educational institution to any applicant who qualifies and reapplies annually from admission to graduation. The award may cover tuition and related supplemental educational expenses such as books, lab fees, travel, and select living costs.
All Shawn Carter Scholars are required to “give back” by performing community service and serving as mentors to younger, aspiring Shawn Carter Scholars.
