What is most interesting about this grant award is that he will be able to use the money in any way that he wants! I have often talked about grant programs such as this kind where the grant recipient can use their grant money in any way that they want. They can use it to pay their bills. They can use the grant money to pay off their debts and they could even use the grant money to buy a car!

A previous recipient of this grant program was an inventor that used the money to further produce their invention!

Other past recipients of this grant were a choreographer, attorney, college professor, photographer and two poets.

This grant money goes directly to the individual and not to an organization or non-profit agency.

With his grant money this year's recipient will use it to produce another CD of his music in which he will include snippets of rap music.

  • show exceptional creativity

  • show promise for important future advances based on a track record of significant accomplishment
