Keith Mann and his wife, Keely, have started a scholarship fund to help low income students in Brooklyn. The Scholarship of Professional Achievement will go to a potential business leader. The couple are partnering with Uncommon Schools to offer the scholarship to one of the organization’s Brooklyn high schools. Uncommon Schools is a non-profit charter management organization. The organization helps low-income students prepare and attend college, a goal which Keith Mann supports fully.
In order to receive the scholarship applicants must submit a 1,000 word essay on how important attending college is to their achievement goals. The scholarship is open to graduating seniors who attend Uncommon Charter High School. Applicants can submit essays no later than February 29. A winner will be decided and announced in March. The total scholarship is worth $5,000.
