Scholarship Set Up In Honour Of Late Rapper Proof
Detroit rapper and Eminem’s close partner, Proof was murdered after an argument in 2006 and a year later his mother Sharallene “Pepper” Holton-White started The Proof Foundation.
The organization was meant to assist Detroit’s children from low income, single parent households with education.
The non-profit company is offering their first scholarship for students entering college. The applicants must have a 3.0 minimum GPA and in order to win they will need to write an essay describing how they would put a halt to violence if they were mayor of Detroit.
The winner will be announced on the anniversary of Proof’s death, April 11th after a candlelight ceremony commemorating the life of the rapper.
