Keith Mann has recently announced a scholarship opportunity for high school students living in New York City. The Keith and Keely Mann Scholarship for Professional Achievement is a great opportunity for students looking to make a career in business. The award is designed to recognize the next generation of business leaders, especially those who appear to have innovative ideas and the dedication to bring those ideas to life. Keith and his wife, Keely, are proud partners of Uncommon Schools. The non-profit New York City-based charter management organization is implementing the scholarship opportunity. It will be awarded to one graduating senior attending one of Uncommon Schools in Brooklyn each year.
Any applicant looking to apply for this scholarship is asked to write a 1,000-word essay on how they believe earning a college degree will aid them in accomplishing any and all professional goals. There is not a specific profession, so it’s open to all graduating seniors attending Uncommon Charter High School in Brooklyn looking to enter any profession. The application process starts in February and the winner is announced in March. They will receive a $5,000 scholarship to apply towards their college tuition.
Joe Frick, one of the members of the Uncommon Schools organization is a college counselor at Uncommon Charter High School. He said, “We are grateful to Keith and Keely Mann for implementing this generous scholarship program at our school. This scholarship will help ensure that one of our students has the means to attend a four-year college.”
Keith Mann responded in kind saying, “We want to support the Uncommon Schools’ goal of preparing low-income students to not only attend, but graduate from college and go on to succeed professionally using their degree. The scholarship will support this mission.”
Mann is the Founder of Dynamics Search Partners. He is also a philanthropist and a determined advocate for education. He is committed to identifying strong leaders and pairing them with companies that better their success. He established Dynamics Search Partners in 2009 after spending 15 years in the search industry.
