Super producer and rapper Will.i.am, best known as a founding member of the Black Eyed Peas, is the founder of the I.Am.Angel Foundation, which provides future visionaries, leaders and innovators with financial assistance for a world-class education. Since its inception, the scholarship program has awarded more than $926,000 to qualifying students in need of financial support.
As part of his commitment to philanthropy, Will.i.am launched the i.am.angel Foundation in 2009 to TRANS4M lives through education, inspiration and opportunity. The i.am.angel foundation administers charitable activities and programs targeted towards providing college scholarships (i.am scholarship), college preparation (i.am College Track), and opportunities in STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics).
The i.am.angel Foundation is especially committed to transforming will.i.am’s hometown of Boyle Heights in east Los Angeles. Boyle Heights is a predominantly low-income, working class, immigrant community that is rich in culture and potential, but struggling with a lack of resources and opportunities.
“I know my purpose is to continue to inspire young people because it’s just going to keep inspiring me back. I want to do my part. I want to invest in America’s future and I want to send you to college. i.am here to let you know that you can be anything you want to be. You are the future of the world,” comments Will.i.am.
The deadline to apply for this scholarship VARIES, and the award amount ranges from $5,000 to $25,000.
