One of our partner organizations, Urban Word NYC, has teamed up with the NY Knicks to offer students a wonderful college scholarship opportunity!
The Knicks Poetry Scholars program is a partnership between the New York Knicks and Urban Word NYC that awards FULL TUITION SCHOLARSHIPS to the University of Wisconsin, Adelphi University, Syracuse University, St. John’s University and Mercy College to college bound high school seniors in the tri-state area. This competition aims to celebrate the value of outstanding students who demonstrate leadership qualities, community engagement, and a fresh perspective.
Students who want a chance to win a full tuition scholarship will 1) apply to the schools of their choice, and after acceptance, 2) write an essay entitled the “Reason I Write” and submit it and a resume/CV and small portfolio of poems.
