Scooter Braun’s SB Projects has announced a new partnership with the First Responders Children’s Foundation for the Children of Heroes Scholarship, which aims to support the children of first responders and medical personnel directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Children of Heroes Scholarship is valued at $600,000 and will be awarded to three students each year for the next eight years. Winning and eligible students will have their tuition, fees, room and board covered (exceptions apply).
Students can apply when starting their freshman or sophomore year, juniors or seniors; however, the scholarship will only pay for the remaining years of undergraduate study.
To be considered for the Children of Heroes scholarship, students must be children of first responders and medical personnel who demonstrate financial need, academic merit, leadership, volunteerism, and participation in extracurricular activities. Business or entrepreneurship majors and children of first responders who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic will receive priority assessment.
“Mr. Braun has been instrumental in supporting First Responders Children’s Foundation and the children and families we serve,” said Jillian Crane, President and CEO of First Responders Children’s Foundation. child of a first responder today often brings an element of sacrifice.We believe the Children of Heroes Scholarship will open up a brighter future for many deserving children of first responders.
Braun’s SB Projects has worked with and has previously donated to the foundation. Using streams and sales of Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande’s ‘Stuck With U’ duet in 2020, $5 million was donated to fund 283 college scholarships, 108 funerals for first responders who died in fiscal year of their duties and more than 1,965 individual hardship grants.
SB Projects, whose executive roster includes Bieber, Grande and Demi Lovato, is a division of Braun’s Ithaca Holdings, which merged with South Korean entertainment giant HYBE in 2021.
