Keith Mann is the founder and president of Dynamic Search Partners. His successful business has been connecting candidates with hedge funds and investment groups for the past ten years. As a prominent business owner and resident of New York, Mann has chosen to help his community by establishing an annual college scholarship for students who would have trouble completing their college education without help from other agencies or foundations.
The award is named The Keith and Keely Mann Scholarship for Professional Achievement. The award is given every year to a graduate of one of the Uncommon Schools in their system. The schools are non-profits educating under-privileged students in the New York area. The $5,000. award is to be used for admission into a college of the winner’s choice. All that is required is that the graduating student is enrolled in one of the Uncommon Schools and that the student compose, write and submit a 1,000-word essay on what the award would mean to him or her.
The advantage for the winner of the scholarship is two-fold. If the student selects a career in investing or finance, Keith Mann can help the student find employment and the right fit in one of a large number of hedge funds and investment banks Mann works with on a daily basis.
