Shawn Carter (Jay-Z) Scholarship Foundation Offers Scholarship Opportunities

Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter comments, “Sometimes, people just need the opportunity to be great. We created the scholarship foundation to be an opening of a door; the first step in a new direction. No one should be cheated out a chance at success just because they can’t continue their education. I want to do my part so anyone that really wants it has a chance to achieve their dream.”

The application is now available.


Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for a scholarship, an applicant must be a US Citizen, 25 years or younger, with at least a 2.0 GPA, who also falls under one of the following categories:

  1. High School Senior
  2. Student who has received their GED diploma
  3. Undergraduate college student pursuing his/her first undergraduate degree
  4. Vocational school student

The application must be completed by the published deadline date- May 31, 2013 (11:59PM EST).

Once you start your application, you may pause and continue at a later time, but you will not be allowed to continue past the deadline date. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed for admission, so make sure all questions are answered, and all required documents are included in your final submission.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

    Many thanks!

    First off I would like to say awesome blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do
    not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.

    I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?

    Currently it seems like WordPress is the best blogging
    platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    into the topic of coaching inside the office.
