Keith Mann, from Dynamics Search Partners, has announced that they will be partnering with Uncommon Schools to provide a scholarship to one specific student. Uncommon Schools is a charter management organization that is based out of New York City.
Mann really took an interest in Uncommon Schools when he realized how many low-income students drop out of school due to lack of family support, being forced to get a job early on, or not having a strong role model to help them through difficult times.
Unlike many scholarships that are available to students entering school, or that must be applied for to reduce tuition cost, this scholarship will only be given to one senior upon graduation. This scholarship will assist in paying off student loan debt that that was acquired while they were receiving their education. The scholarship will be in the amount of $5,000.
In 2015, Mann partnered with a large number of companies to raise $22,000 to help Uncommon Schools to assist in opening a new high school to reduce overcrowding and reduce class size. This allows students more one on one time with instructors, and leads to greater individual success for the students that do want to succeed.
Uncommon schools are a non-profit urban charter public school. Most their students are from low-income students, but they also cater to graduate students. They help students who would normally struggle in school reach their goals.
Currently, they work with more than 44 public schools in the state of Massachusetts, New York, and New Jersey. In 2016, they have served more than 14,000 students.
