Latin Rapper Announces Hip-Hop Scholarship
LatinRapper.com, a popular and hugely comprehensive sight for Latin hip-hop and reggaeton music, recently announced the establishment of the annual Hip Hop scholarship. Latin undergraduates who submit an essay through LatinRapper.com will be eligible to receive the $500 scholarship to apply towards their education. Says the ezine's owner Dante, "As a college graduate from a low-income background, I understand how even the smallest assistance may contribute to someone's academic and professional career." He hopes to see the dollar amount of the scholarship climb in the next few years, as well as he number of essays, in a move to not only improve education in the community, but also to use it towards fueling the careers of Latin artists.
The deadline for this year is 12.00 Noon, Thursday, November 30, 2006
The annual Hip Hop scholarship will be announced during National Hispanic Heritage Month, September 15 - October 15
