Applications are now open and we are offering a new scholarship: the DJ Chonz Scholarship for the amount of $1,900.00. See links below for application forms.
Born and raised in Denver, Colorado,
Mario Rodriguez came into a world filled with the culture of the streets.
Although living under the guidance of his devout Catholic parents, Rodriguez
dabbled in everything the streets had to offer, from gang life to hip-hop.
In hip-hop, an
appropriate nickname is needed. “I used to kick it in my chones [a Mexican
slang word for underwear], take out the trash in my chones, so my name was
chones for a while. Then people just started calling me Chonz.” DJ Chonz shows
his skills on the turntable at KS 107.5 and is the first DJ to ever mix live on
commercial radio in Denver. He also continues to dominate the nightclub scene
with several weekly events in Denver as well as consistent events in Las Vegas,
San Diego, Phoenix, and Los Angeles. DJ Chonz has generously allotted one scholarship in full. For more information, see www.djchonz.com
Additional scholarship awards are available ranging from partial- to full-cost coverage. Please contact one of our co-directors to further discuss scholarships information!
Applications and all supplemental materials are due by March 31, 2014. Please send all materials, including any additional media or supporting materials, to firstname.lastname@example.org
