Keith Mann, founder and CEO of Dynamics Search Partners, announced in 2016 that he was introducing a new scholarship program that targets Brooklyn, New York City. The scholarship will be awarded to a top achieving student, from Uncommon Schools, who has proven beyond any doubt that they deserve a college education. In addition, they must prove that they worked hard enough through attaining top academic honors in high school.
The scholarship is only open to students who attend schools chartered to Uncommon Schools and that are based in Brooklyn. The scholarship will be only awarded to one student every year that graduates from Uncommon Schools. Keith Mann said that he was keen to support the nonprofit organization in its mandate to prepare its students to attend college and become professional leaders.
All prospective candidates will be required to submit a well written essay of 1000 words. In the essay, they should explain how thy plan to achieve their professional goals using a college degree. The final application date is February 29, 2016. One winner will be announced and notified before the end of the next month of March. They will be awarded $50,000 that will all go towards covering their college tuition.
The school has gladly accepted the new scholarship offer. A counselor employed by Uncommon Charter High School, Joe Frick, has expressed gratitude at the generous offer made by Keith Mann. He said at least one student was assured of attending college.
