Keith Mann of Dynamics Search Partners has partnered with Uncommon Schools to pioneer the Keith and Keely Mann Scholarship for Professional Achievement award. Uncommon Schools is an NGO based in New York City whereas the Keith and Keely Mann Scholarship for Professional Achievement award seeks to recognize next generation innovators in the business world. These innovators are to be trained to become business leaders. Each year, the award will take up one graduating senior from the Uncommon Schools based in Brooklyn.
The scholarship is meant to ensure the successful applicant attends a four-year college course, all expenses taken care of. Senior high school graduates are to write a 1,000-word essay to be eligible. The essay is to capture how the college degree will help them achieve their professional goals.
Keith Mann said that Dynamic Search Partners is looking into supporting low-income students to graduate and fully pursue their professional desires. The successful applicant receives a $5,000 scholarship towards their college tuition.
