Final year Jamaican university students can now send in their applications to get assistance from the Spark It Up Education Grant that is being spearheaded by ZJ Sparks.
The disc jock launched the initiative in March, and now she has partnered with National Bakery to give a lucky applicant/s a non-renewable grant for one semester. Persons applying must be in their final year of university, have good academic scores and should be involved in extracurricular activities.
The first grant was awarded in April through proceeds from a clothing line Sparks started using the popular ‘Yaas Goodie’ and ‘Steam Fish and Okra Body’ slogans.
Now that she has been able to partner with National Bakery for the initiative, Sparks is grateful.
“I have to thank in a BIG way @nationalbakery for partnering with me this time around on this initiative! Gratitude issa must,” said the disc jock, whose real name is Tricia Spence.
The application period began on November 19 and will end on November 27. Persons wishing to apply may do so on Sparks’ website, sparkiebaby.com.
