Jay-Z Scholarship Program For Students Who Want to Study Abroad

Jay-Z, founder of the Shawn Carter Foundation

Rapper Jay-Z's Shawn Carter Foundation and the University of the Arts London/ London College of Communication have established a cultural exchange program called NYLON that helps students who want to study abroad. The program aims to increase the future employment prospects of underserved students by exposing them to a cross-cultural, academic, experiential, and professional development experience in creative industries.
The partnership between the Shawn Carter Foundation and the Institute for International Education (IIE)/Gilman International Scholarship Program is designed to expand the global experiences and leadership opportunities for underserved students through the establishment of full study-abroad scholarships.

Eligible Shawn Carter Scholars will undergo a screening and selection process by IIE/Gilman and a short list of recommended students will be forwarded to Shawn Carter Foundation for final selection of awardees. All students are required to complete a follow-on service project so that their study abroad experiences and insights are shared back with their home, school and communities, a necessary component of “giving back.”

The deadline for this scholarship VARIES, and the scholarship amount covers all travel and living expenses.
