Keys Offers School Scholarships

R+B star ALICIA KEYS is offering four scholarships to students who need financial help to attend university. The Grammy Award winner is offering $5,000 (GBP2,600) scholarships to students from four cities in the US. She explains, "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." The four scholarship winners will be selected in Jacksonville, Florida, New Orleans, Louisiana, Atlanta, Georgia and New York City's Harlem neighbourhood. The Open Doors Scholars Program is part of From The Ground Up, a Jacksonville-based nonprofit organisation started by Keys' road manager, DJ WALTON, who went to college in Jacksonville. In return for their scholarships, the students will represent the organisation at school appearances and must perform community service each semester.
