(WXYZ) - Jay Z's Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation is doing its part to help under served students get a higher education.
The foundation 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. This group is generally not the recipient of college scholarships and is typically ignored by the Board of Education.
If you or someone you know is a high school senior, college student, and/or between the ages of 18-25 pursuing studies at a vocational or trade school, you may be eligible for the Shawn Carter Scholarship. All applicants must be a US Citizen and complete the on-line application no later than the published deadline date, which is May 31, 2013. You can learn more by visiting h ttp://www.shawncartersf.com/
