Pepsi Scholarship: Stronger Together

Pepsi is teaming up with recording artist, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, Fat Joe, as well as Gamesa Cookies to launch the first ever Pepsi Stronger Together Scholarship. According to a press release, “The program, part of PepsiCo's series of grassroots initiatives tailored to local communities, aims to support underserved youth nationwide by inviting students to apply to receive one of four $25,000 scholarships towards an education in music and arts.” The music scholarship program kicked off on June 12 at the Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City, where Fat Joe served as Padrino, or Godfather, on the Pepsi Stronger Together and Gamesa Float. This event has launched a national tour that will stop in Los Angeles, Houston, and Miami.
Winners will be announced in October, during Hispanic Heritage Month, at the iHeartRadio’s Fiesta Latina concert, according to BLACK ENTERPRISE.
