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 educational opportunity. This group is generally not the recipients of college scholarships and is typically ignored by the Board of Education.
The Shawn Carter Foundation offers scholarship opportunities to any under-served student across the United States who desires 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?.
This scholarship is open to the public. Please apply before the deadline May 31, 2013. Thanks.
On May 1st from 10am-8pm, The Council of Elders held a fundraiser to benefit our programs and activities at three Maryland area Bob Evans restaurants in our community:
Bob Evans, 8325 Benson Drive, Columbia, MD
Bob Evans, 4900 Beaver Run Way, Ellicott City, MD
Bob Evans, 3361 Corridor Market Place, Laurel, MD
We just wanted to take a moment to say “Thank You”, for answering the call and coming out to support us. Even being one of the last ones to show up at the Benson Drive location (around 7:45pm), we still managed to see many of you there with your families. It was great getting the chance to speak with so many of you who share our vision for the black students and families in our community.
Thank you for your support!!!
