Alicia holds the keys to youngster?s dreams

Alicia Keys has put up the cash to help talented youngsters fulfil their dreams through university studies. The Grammy Award winner is offering four $7000 scholarships to students from four cities. “We’re just looking for standout students who are definitely college-bound and need a little bit of help financially to really achieve their dreams,” the singer/pianist says. The four scholarship winners will be selected from Jacksonville, New orleans, Atlanta and New York City’s Harlem neighbourhood. In return for their scholarships, the winners will represent the organisation at school appearances and must perform community service each semester. [22 January 2007]
