Keith Mann Investing in the Future

With the intent of nurturing the business minds of tomorrow, Keith and Keely Mann have teamed with Uncommon Charter schools to provide the Keith and Keely Mann Scholarship for Professional Achievement.

Potential scholarship recipients should create an essay outlining how achieving their goal of a college degree will help them in the future. The 1000 word essay winner will be announced at the end of March. The winner will receive $5000.00 to be put towards tuition costs. One hardworking and deserving senior will be picked each year and will be picked from the Brooklyn schools. The application process will run through Feb. 29, 2016

When talking about the scholarship, Mann had this to say;
“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 program is in line with Mann’s focus over the past 15 years or so. He has focused on finding top talent and linking that talent with companies. By attempting to level the playing field, he can further offer talent that may not have been able to be found before. Reaching out to lesser privileged people also diversifies the talent pool and can provide fresh points of view.

Uncommon Schools consists of 44 charter schools through out New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts and focuses on providing education to lower income students.
