GlobalHue's Don Coleman establishes scholarship for aspiring entrepreneurs

(February 3, 2009) Donald A. Coleman, Chairman of GlobalHue, the nation's largest multicultural marketing communications agency, has established The Coleman Entrepreneurial Scholarship (CES). The program launched last month and will provide scholarships to deserving college students attending selected Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Hispanic Serving Institutions. The scholarships are awarded to those majoring or concentrating in entrepreneurship.
The Coleman Entrepreneurial Scholarship was established as a testament to the importance of education, especially amongst ethnic youth in the United States. Furthermore, the scholarship program strives to promote entrepreneurship as a career choice amongst ethnic college students.
"Private enterprise and entrepreneurship play a critical role in the building of America and our communities," says Kelli Coleman, daughter of Don Coleman and Vice President at GlobalHue. "For this reason, my father has established a scholarship to recognize students who have an entrepreneurial spirit and quest for a higher education."
Up to 20 scholarships of $5,000 each will be awarded for educational expenses to full-time college juniors or seniors for use in the 2009-10 academic year. The CES program is sponsored by GlobalHue and managed by Scholarship Management Services, a division of Scholarship America.
It is the vision of The Coleman Entrepreneurial Scholarship program to be a leading scholarship program that assists future generations of African-American and Hispanic entrepreneurs in fulfilling their dreams. For more information, visit www.thecolemanscholarship.org or call Scholarship Management Services at 1.800.537.4180 and ask for The Coleman Entrepreneurial Scholarship.
