Keith Mann Launches Scholarship Award for Uncommon Schools in Brooklyn

Keith Mann recently announced the introduction of Keith and Keely Mann scholarship award program in Brooklyn, New York. The MD of Dynamics Search Partners announced plans to enter into a working partnership with Uncommon Schools to help young leaders get quality college education. The award will recognize and motivate the future crop of innovative, young business leaders.

Uncommon Schools is a non-profit organization that manages chartered schools. The head office is situated in New York. It runs a huge network of about 44 public schools across New York, Massachusetts and New Jersey. The schools cater for students from low income families and prepare them for college. They aim to see all students excel and attain a college degree. This is the reason why the scholarship program was well received by the group of schools.

Joe Frick, college counsellor at one of the schools, said that Uncommon Schools was grateful for the generosity showed by Keith and Keely Mann. He reiterated that the scholarship will ensure that one student will be empowered to get a complete college education.

The scholarship is open to all seniors graduating from any of the schools based in Brooklyn, New York. However, only one spot is available. Applicants are expected to write a detailed essay of 1000 words explaining how a college degree will help them reach their professional goals. The application process will remain open until February 29, 2016. The eventual winner will be announced before March 30, 2016. The recipient will get $5,000 to pay for their college tuition.
