Keith Mann Offers New Scholarship To Future Leaders at Uncommon Schools

Founder of Dynamics Search Partners, Keith Mann, and his wife Keely have announced a new scholarship that is aimed at helping to bring attention to the business leaders that are up and coming. Titled the Keith and Keely Mann Scholarship for Professional Achievement, the award is a scholarship that the couple is offering via their partnership with Uncommon Schools. Uncommon Schools is a non-profit in NYC that offers charter school to students that show promise. The scholarship will be available to one graduating senior that attends one of the Uncommon Schoools high school level schools in Brooklyn.

Keith Mann started Dynamics Executive Search Partners after finding out that the hedge fund industry did not have any type of search community for hiring and staffing purposes. He has been quite successful since then running the business which focuses solely on alternative investment firms. His firm now works with clients all over the globe and in his free time is known for his philanthropy and working with organizations such as Uncommon Schools.

Uncommon High School school counselor Joe Frick who sees the kids on a daily basis reach towards greatness stated that they are very appreciative of the scholarship program that the Manns have started. He added that this scholarship will help out one of their students making sure that they have the chance to apply and actually a four year college upon graduation.

In order to be considered for the scholarship applicants are required to write a thousand word essay on the topic of how a college degree will help them reach towards their professional goals. This ties in with Keith Mann’s vision of finding innovative future leaders and giving them the educational opportunities they need to become leaders.

Keith Mann explained that they decided to offer this scholarship because the couple believes in the Uncommon Schools’ goal of making it possible for low income students to attend and fulfil a four year degree so that they can have the same professional opportunities as others.

    He added that this new scholarship is going to help make that a reality. Applications for the scholarship will be accepted until Feb. 29th, 2016 and the winner will be announced at the close of March. I do understand that would have to make sure all these things come to pass in a rightful manner and to ensure it works really well for them too.
