The Michael Jackson Scholarship
October 13th, 2010 by michelle
Are you an African American student? When dreaming of furthering your education, do you envision yourself majoring in performance arts, English, or communications? If you answered yes to these questions, then we just might have the scholarship you've been looking for.
Michael Jackson, the well known pop icon, left behind a legacy of generosity. In 1986, he donated over one million dollars to the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) to establish a scholarship endowment. This fund has enabled over 500 students to attend college since 1986, and the original gift continues to earn interest so that future students can also receive scholarships.
