Each year, the Keith and Kelly Mann Scholarship for Professional Achievement will be issued to one student at a Brooklyn-based Uncommon Schools high school. This award is meant to recognize future business leaders and help them prepare for a brighter future. The competition for the scholarship is fierce and it starts with a 1,000-word essay. This essay must describe how receiving the scholarship will help the student achieve their professional goals. Once all essays have been completed Keith Mann personally goes through each essay and selects the student that he finds to be most qualified.
The Keith Mann scholarship is open to seniors at Uncommon Schools and the winner is announced at the end of March. The scholarship is $5,000 and should go a long way towards paying for college.
