JET magazine is giving away cash for college!
According to a press release, the publication has teamed up with NBC Universal’s The Best Man Holiday to give away five scholarships for $1,760. The Spring 2014 Scholarship, in conjunction with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, is open to currently enrolled, full-time college students with a 3.0 GPA or higher.
“JET is committed to the advancement of education for all individuals, especially those in the Black community, and I’m very excited that we have the opportunity to partner with NBCUniversal to offer five students scholarship funds that may help further them toward earning a college degree,” said JET magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Mitzi Miller, said in a statement.
“I love the first installment of The Best Man because it told a dynamic story of a group of diverse, adult friends who maintained a strong friendship since their years at college,” she added. “What better way to celebrate such an inspiring narrative than to help a student finish college so they might one day enjoy that same experience.”
Interested students should submit all application materials( resume, college transcript and 350-word essay) by October 15. The winners will be notified by November 1 and officially announced in the November issue of the magazine.
