Roc Nation School of Music, Sports & Entertainment Supports Hope Scholarship Program With Inaugural School Collection
The Roc Nation School of Music, Sports & Entertainment at Long Island University unveiled its inaugural back-to-school merch collection for the Fall 2021 semester, where proceeds from all purchases will be directed toward the Hope Scholarship program.
The collection will include T-shirts, sweaters, hoodies, shorts, socks, hats, beach towels, notebooks, water bottles and many more items. The first iteration of the school-branded merchandise will be accessible in black, white, gray, blue, pink and brown colorways with new colors and fresh options to be revealed in the coming months.
The entire merch collection is fully available at the University’s new student-run store – canteen – which opened on the first day of classes earlier this month and is located on the first floor of the Metcalfe Building on campus. Additionally, the pieces from the initial release are currently available for purchase online.
Of note, 100 percent of the proceeds from all items purchased at canteen will go toward the Roc Nation Hope Scholarships, which will provide a tuition debt-free education for 25 percent of enrolled students at the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports & Entertainment.
The Roc Nation Hope Scholars will be selected from a pool of academically competitive, New York-based first-time freshmen with the highest need. In addition to graduating debt-free, these students will also receive individualized support and mentorship as long as they maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA and complete at least 30 credits per school year.
