Entrepreneur and one of the original co-founders of Roc-A-Fella Records with former partners Jay-Z and Damon Dash. He also helped launch the Rocawear clothing line, which was later purchased by Iconix for over $200 million dollars.

Scholarship Details

Yellowbrick believes that a student’s personal passion and hustle – rather than financial resources – should determine how far they can go. Our aim is to expose students who are passionate about areas like music, fashion, sports, or sneakers to pursue rewarding career opportunities that can spark their interest and open doors to a fulfilling future.

Yellowbrick’s programs have the potential to change students lives by:

  • Providing a valuable credential, in the form of a certificate from a leading university, that will help open doors to career opportunities that students may not have otherwise known about
  • Developing real-world skills that empower students to seize these opportunities
  • Informing choices and helping students build an actionable roadmap toward setting and accomplishing career goals
  • Inspiring dreams and building the confidence and know-how to pursue them
Kareem’s scholarship is to empower up-and-comers to pursue careers in music, sneakers, and related fields.
