Dynamics Search Partners founder Keith Mann announced that he and his wife have created a new award to help identify the distinguished business upcoming business leaders. The award has been named the Keith and Keely Mann Scholarship for Professional Achievement and will be given out to a graduating senior of the Uncommon Schools in Brooklyn every year. Keith and Keely Mann created the scholarship with Uncommon Schools in mind which is a non-profit charter educational group that they have worked with in the past.
College counselor Joe Frick who works at an Uncommon Charter High School stated that they are very happy and grateful that Keith Mann has created this wondering scholarship program for their students to aspire towards. He went on to say that this scholarship will guarantee one of their students the ability to go on to a four year degree at college.
Mann is involved in the executive search industry although he got his start in hedge fund compensation. Since then his focus has switched towards hiring and staffing strategy. Upon noticing that the hedge fund industry did not have a great search community for employees he created Dynamics Search Partners to fill the void. In his free time he and his wife are both known for their generous philanthropy work.
Keith Mann stated that they support the Uncommon Schools because they believe their work is important and that is important to not only offer low income students a source of education, but also to prepare them to be able to attend and graduate from college. He went on to explain that the scholarship is going to help them make sure that students are able to reach towards college graduation and success in the business world.
The scholarship will be open to all seniors that graduate from an Uncommon Charter High School located in Brooklyn, NY. The application process will be open every year until Feb. 29, 2016 for all interested seniors to apply. The winner will be announced at the end of 2016 and will be given a $5,000 scholarship for tuition to a college of their choice.
