To be applicable for the scholarship, applicants must be high school students must be seniors prepared to graduate from Uncommon Charter High School in Brooklyn. The winner of the scholarship, when announced, will receive $5,000 that will then be applied towards their college education.
In order to apply for the scholarships, applicants must author a one-thousand word essay that explores the importance of a college degree and how it will help them on their path to achieving their professional aspirations.
