Alicia Keys Opens Door to Scholar Program

January 22, 2007 (6:22 am) GMT
Alicia Keys is offering $5,000 college scholarships to students in four cities, Jacksonville, Florida; New Orleans, Louisiana; Atlanta, Georgia; and New York City’s Harlem neighborhood.

Her deep concern to education has led to offer scholarship. The Grammy-Award winning singer is offering $5,000 college scholarships to four students in four cities.

"We're just looking for standout students who are definitely college-bound and need a little bit of help financially to really achieve their dreams," Keys explained.

The scholarship, called the Open Doors Scholars Program, is a part of Frum Tha Ground Up, a Jacksonville-based nonprofit organization started by Keys' road manager, D.J. Walton.

The winner, in return for their scholarships, will have to represent the organization at school appearances and must perform community service each semester.

UPDATE (Jan 28): Visit www.OpenDoorScholarship.com to apply. Applications must be postmarked March 1 or earlier. Frum Tha Ground Up's selection committee will decide the four winners and notify them by mid-May. Only the first 200 applicants will be considered.
