Magic Johnson Giving Away 30 Scholarships To Minority Students

The deadline to apply is February 2, 2013.

Nationwide — In 1998, Magic Johnson, through his Magic Johnson Foundation, created the Taylor Michaels Scholarship Program, named after Taylor Michaels, one of his former employees who passed away during that year. Throughout her life, Taylor was known for displaying an intense passion and commitment to youth development, and so for the last 14 years, he has carried her passion forward via the scholarship program.

Each year, they select approximately 30 scholars who demonstrate a strong potential for academic achievement, but face socioeconomic challenges hindering their full expression. Winners will get $2,000 – $5,000 annual tuition assistance-renewable up to 5 years, and a free laptop during their freshman year. They will also have access to internships and mentors.

The deadline is February 2, 2013. Incomplete and late applications will not be accepted.
