Desiree Perez School Scholarship

Soon a deserving student at Roc Nation School of Music, Sports & Entertainment, will be able to be the recipient of a full scholarship courtesy of the world-famous performer Megan Thee Stallion. This is the latest piece of good news for the growing school which was formed after two entities came together. The school was set up following the partnership of LIU Brooklyn and Roc Nation, which is headed by their CEO, Desiree Perez. The announcement of the scholarship will help to provide philanthropic support for the school that Desiree Perez helped to start at Long Island University.

In addition to sponsoring the scholarship, Megan Thee Stallion will also be acting as a lecturer. Those who are applying for the scholarship will be asked to both provide samples of their music and the reasons why they think they would be the best candidate to be the recipient of the scholarship. The rapper has said that she wanted to provide an educational opportunity to a student who otherwise might not be able to attend college. This idea of identifying talent and providing it with the opportunity to succeed is a critical message that Desiree Perez has been promoting with the creation of the school.

Inclusion, opportunity, and equity are all core foundations of the new school. During the announcement of the school’s creation, it was noted that around a quarter of incoming freshmen would be receiving a scholarship, this will allow the recipients to graduate without and student loan debt. Those eligible for the scholarships will be selected from academically gifted students from New York City. This new school will provide undergraduate programs in music technology, music, production sports management, and finally entrepreneurship. Students will be exposed to both guest lecturers and will be offered the opportunity to complete internships in their industry.

Giving The Chance: Vinod Gupta

Vinod Gupta has been in business for many years. One of the things that he learned when he was young was the value of giving back to others. He puts that into a simple but true phrase. He says that we come into the world with nothing and we leave with nothing. That is why I am donating all of my things to charity. He wants to leave this world better off than when he came into it. That is the legacy he wants to leave.

Vinod Gupta set up his own charitable foundation and made a contribution to a school in 1991. It is called the Gupta School of Management. He gave his own endowment of two million dollars to the school and he did not stop there. He wanted to do more. He also set up the Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property. This is for young lawyers who want to get into the practice of intellectual property and its applications. He did this in 2006 and contributed another two million dollars of his own money.

When he was growing up Vinod Gupta didn’t have the things that some people take for granted. He was able to make something of himself and go to college. This is what gave him his passion for helping others. He also went to the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. He has a Bachelor’s Degree, two Master’s Degrees, and three doctorate degrees. It is a very impressive feat. He was also able to spring into action and help those affected by the pandemic. He was one of the first to help India with supplies when it hit.

This is what Vinod Gupta was meant to do. He loves being able to make the community better. He knows what to do in troubled times.
