Alicia Keys is showing her dedication to educational causes by offering scholarships of $5,000 to four students in need of financial assistance.

“We’re just looking for standout students who are definitely college-bound and need a little bit of help financially to really achieve their dreams,” Keys said.

Students from four cities, Jacksonville, New Orleans, Atlanta and New York City’s Harlem neighborhood will be selected to receive the funds.

The scholarships are given through the Open Doors Scholars Program, part of Frum Tha Ground Up, a charity started by Keys’ road manager, D.J. Walton. Keys is a member of the charity’s board.
