JET magazine, in partnership with the NBCUniversal film, The Best Man Holiday, is proud to announce The Best Man Holiday Spring 2014 Scholarship in conjunction with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund. This scholarship opportunity will provide five outstanding college students with a scholarship of $1,760 for the spring 2014 school semester.
“JET is committed to the advancement of education for all individuals, especially those in the Black community, and I’m very excited that we have the opportunity to partner with NBCUniversal to offer five students scholarship funds that may help further them toward earning a college degree,” said JET magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Mitzi Miller. “I love the first installment of The Best Man because it told a dynamic story of a group of diverse, adult friends who maintained a strong friendship since their years at college,” she continued. “What better way to celebrate such an inspiring narrative than to help a student finish college so they might one day enjoy that same experience.”
To apply for the scholarship, students can visit JETMag.com. The submission deadline is Tuesday, October 15 and winners will be notified by November 1 and officially announced in the November 25 issue of JET, which will be on the stands November 4, 2013.
