Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez aims to find talent and provide it an opportunity to grow through the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports, and Entertainment. This revolutionary school that Desiree Perez has created is attracting attention. Most recently, Megan Thee Stallion has stepped in to offer her financial and professional support. The famous rapper will be awarding one student a full-ride, four-year scholarship. While offering this financial aid, she’ll also be providing guest lectures at the school. Students trying to qualify for Thee Stallion Scholarship will be asked to show samples of their music as well as make a statement on why they’re the right scholarship candidate.
Desiree and Megan Thee Stallion seem to agree wholeheartedly on key points that make this school unique. Making the school an inclusive and opportunistic place for gifted students who may not normally have access to this level of education is the message. Desiree backed that messaging up during the genesis of the school. 25% of new students would receive the Roc Nation Hope Scholarship and graduate debt-free. Music isn’t all you’ll find at the Roc Nation School.
Undergrad programs include music production, entrepreneurship, and sports management. Roc Nation also hosts a summer camp for younger students looking to sharpen their skills. Desiree Perez has also garnered a star-studded faculty. Musicians Sam Newsome and Colin Levin have joined, and executive ad agency Wieden + Kennedy have also jumped aboard for new programs. The school’s success comes as no surprise with Desiree Perez at the helm. The CEO has been largely successful in her professional endeavors. Leading the charge for Roc Nation School is another amazing opportunity to show the world exactly what she and the talent she supports can do.
