Nas INVESTS In Higher Education With “The Nas Scholarship Fund”
“I know I can…be what I wanna be” Nas wants to help college grads transition to the real world successfully. Get the deets on how he’s making it happen inside….
Well here’s some good news. You know how hard it is for a college grad to land their first job after graduating and now it just got a little easier.
Nasir Jones is all about street dreams..and now he's about college dreams. He's making a huge investment in higher education by offering college graduates The Nas Scholarship Fund. Nas’ investment company Queensbridge Venture Partners has teamed up with educational company Koru to assist graduates in making the transition into successful careers. Koru is a program that helps grads with landing their career goals, providing job training and placement. And with the backing of Nas’ investment company, the program plans to expand to reach more students.
In a statement, Nas (who dropped out of school in the 8th grade) expressed how anxious he is to work with students saying,
“I’m inspired to support Koru participants because I know how hard it can be to carve out your path and purpose in life. It takes conviction, hard work and the right network. The young people going through Koru are gritty, book smart and street smart. The Koru program gives them an opportunity to put those smarts to work. I can’t wait to work directly with them and share what I’ve learned through my own life experiences.
