The Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund (SCSF) was established on the principle that any motivated student in need should be able to further his or her education. The SCSF serves a critical role in enhancing college access and success for many motivated but underserved youth and young adults by alleviating some of the financial burdens involved with attending, surviving in, and graduating from college.
Every student who qualifies and reapplies yearly, from entrance to graduation, receives an individual grant from the SCSF, which is given directly to the educational institution. The award can be used to pay for tuition and related extra educational expenditures such books, lab fees, travel, and some living expenses.
