File this under “Cool AF”:

Jose Mangin has announced his new non-profit: Headbang for Science. "After years of talking about starting a nonprofit for Metal nerds, I finally can say I f'ing did it!!!" Mangin posted to Instagram. 

"@headbangforscience is an official 501(c)(3) charity ready to do some really cool shit for the Metal community" the post continued. "#HeadbangForScience provides an annual scholarship award to a graduating high school senior, majoring in science/medicine, has financial need, 3.5 GPA [or higher], and is passionate about Metal music. The 1st and only public charity dedicated to headbangers who excel in science & want to pursue a medical career."

Mangin—easily one of the most-recognized celebrities in rock—has been heralded as the "Metal Ambassador" by Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, and millions of SiriusXM listeners. It's at SiriusXM that he launched the ubiquitous Octane and Liquid Metal, and more than twenty years later, he SiriusXM's longest-running rock radio host, while making appearances The Howard Stern Show, MTV's Headbangers Ball, the nationally syndicated LatiNation, and programs on Amazon, AXS-TV, and VH1. Now with Headbang for Science, Mangin has yet another outstanding achievement to add to his already stellar profile.

According to the Headbang for Science website, "The Headbang For Science scholarship award is open to all high school seniors who identify as a 'Metalhead,' and designed to encourage study in medicine, pharmacy, nursing, dentistry, and related sciences (chemistry & biology). Eligible applicants must be U.S. or Canadian citizens or permanent (legal) residents entering their freshman year of a four-year college in the Fall following the distribution of the award and must be planning to pursue a degree in science (chemistry or biology) and/or graduate degree in medicine, pharmacy, nursing, and dentistry.
