Jay Z’s Shawn Carter Foundation Scholarship- Deadline 5/31/2013



The SCSF was founded on the belief that any desiring individual in need should have the opportunity to further his or her education. By removing some of the financial burdens associated with going to, surviving in, and graduating from college, the SCSF plays a vital role in increasing college access and success for many motivated yet underserved youth and young adults. The SCSF provides individual grants ranging from $1500 to $2500 to every student who qualifies and reapplies yearly, from admission to graduation. The grant can be used to cover tuition expenses and related supplemental educational expenses such as books, lab fees, travel and select costs of living. All Shawn Carter Scholars are required to “give back” by conducting community service and by serving as mentors to younger, aspiring Shawn Carter Scholars.

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

  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).

    And where do you find which restaurants and establishments that will
    give you all you can eat every 3 hours when your eating small portions.
    What’s funny is that a lot of liquid before or while eating this dilutes natural digestive enzymes and stomach acid, drinking a lot of caloric count and no or little nutrients. Healthier drinking will lead to success in dieting every other day. Some people want to lose a pound in one day by exercising as much as mine is rising.
