The allure of the Best Man films are the long lasting relationships rooted in college experiences. JET Magazine and NBC Universal are taking advantage of that with their just announced Best Man Holiday scholarship contest. Those who enter will have a shot at winning a $1,760 prize through the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
The required items are a resume, college transcript, 350-word essay and 3.0 grade point average. The lucky winners will be notified on November 1 and honored in that month’s issue of the magazine.
“JET is committed to the advancement of education for all individuals, especially those in the Black community, and I’m very excited that we have the opportunity to partner with NBCUniversal to offer five students scholarship funds that may help further them toward earning a college degree. I love the first installment of The Best Man because it told a dynamic story of a group of diverse, adult friends who maintained a strong friendship since their years at college,” she added. “What better way to celebrate such an inspiring narrative than to help a student finish college so they might one day enjoy that same experience,” said JET magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Mitzi Miller.
