Funk Fest is coming to Birmingham, AL soon and bringing scholarships for youth to tote! For those not familiar with the musical tour, it is composed of classic and legendary artists of the last 20 years such as Frankie Beverly and Maze, Jill Scott, Outkast, and LL Cool J. There are typically a variety of different performers each year on the tour. You can find out which artists are performing this year through the link at the bottom of this article.
Perhaps, the most amazing aspect of the tour is that Pepsi is partnering with the tour's sponsors to provide $50,000.00 in scholarship funds to high school seniors and current college students. Each student chosen will receive $2,500.00 that would go toward books, tuition, or room/board. The partnership will also be setting up a chance for 40 individuals to gain internship opportunities with executives in Marketing, Public Relations, and Production/Operations that will be vital for their career growth.
