The Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund (SCSF)

The Shawn Carter Foundation was established in 2003 as a 501(c)3 public charity (“Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund”) by Shawn Carter and his mother, Gloria Carter. Its' mission is to help individuals facing socio-economic hardships further their education at institutions of higher learning. Shawn Carter Foundation Scholars represent diverse backgrounds, and typically face significant barriers to success such as teen pregnancy, homelessness, former incarceration, interrupted schooling, and sexual and domestic abuse, but they all possess an extraordinary desire to pursue their educational and professional dreams.

Shawn Carter Scholars are studying at over 200 institutions of higher learning throughout the nation and receive annual financial support from the Shawn Carter Foundation from college admission to college graduation. The Foundation continues to expand and strengthen its scope of work around education, economic advancement and service to increase the socioeconomic prospects of our most underserved populations.
