The Shawn Carter (Jay-Z) Scholarship Fund offers scholarship opportunities to any under-served student across the United States.
Qualified applicant must be a high school senior, college student, and/or between the ages of 18-25, pursuing studies at a vocational or trade school.
The Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation is unique in that it offers scholarships 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 desire a higher education.
One of the key questions asked by the Foundation when students apply for a scholarship is: What are your plans to give back to the community?
