      The Jalen Rose Foundation: Providing College Scholarships for Detroit Students

      The Jalen Rose Foundation is currently accepting applications for $10,000 college scholarships from high school seniors residing in the city of Detroit, Michigan, who will begin college in the summer or fall of 2008.

      The Jalen Rose Foundation was established by NBA star Jalen Rose to create life-changing opportunities for under served youth through the development of unique programs and the distribution of grants to qualified nonprofit organizations. Since its inception, the foundation has distributed nearly one million to charities, which includes a $100,000 donation to the Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which was founded by another NBA player, Dikembe Mutombo.

      In 2006, the foundation was named one of the top 26 sports foundations by Overtime magazine, and in 2005, Black Enterprise magazine named Jalen as a leader in philanthropy.

      College Scholarship Eligibility: Applicants must reside in Detroit and be a high school senior in good standing during the 2007-2008 school year with a cumulative GPA of 3.0/4.0 or higher. Students must be able to prove acceptance by an accredited college or university before the scholarships are distributed and demonstrate financial need.

      Deadline: All entries must be postmarked no later than April 30, 2008.

      "Cowardice asks the question: is it safe? Expediency asks the question: is it political? Vanity asks the question: is it popular? But conscience asks the question: is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor political, nor popular - but one must take it simply because it is right."

      Now that's what i am talking about. They do not say how many scholarships that will be given but if it is even 20 that means that's 20 more of our people headed to collage and that in itself is a blessing.
      You are here because you know something,what you
      know you can't explain,but you feel it.You've felt it
      your entire life; that theres something wrong with the
      world.You don't know what it is but it's there; a
      splinter in your mind... the matrix
