Megan Thee Stallion is helping a couple of her fellow hotties with their college bill. On Thursday, Oct. 8, the “Savage” rapper announced that she would be rewarding eligible women of color with $10,000 scholarships.
According to multiple reports, the Houston native has partnered with Rap Rotation, Amazon Music’s flagship global hip-hop playlist, to launch her “Don’t Stop Scholarship Fund.” The award was named after her latest single featuring rapper Yung Thug. It will be awarded to two female students pursuing an associate, bachelor, or postgraduate degree in any field of their choosing.
“COLLEGE HOT GIRLS THIS ONE IS FOR YOU SO LISTEN UP IM GIVING AWAY 2 10,000 SCHOLARSHIPS TO TWO WOMEN OF COLOR IN ANY FIELD OF STUDY,” Megan tweeted. She added, “APPLY NOW #DONTSTOPSCHOLARSHIP,” along with the link to the official scholarship website.
The scholarship comes when the 25-year-old is pursuing a degree in health care administration at Texas Southern University. After announcing the scholarship fund on Twitter, the rapper informed all the “college hot girls” that they had crashed the website. “The site will be back up in a few minutes and it is a GLOBAL SCHOLARSHIP so hot girls from all over the world can apply,” Megan tweeted.
A statement from the website read, “IN HONOR OF ALL THE YOUNG WOMEN OUT THERE WHO DON’T STOP WORKING HARD TO GET THEIR EDUCATION! WOMEN REMAIN UNDERREPRESENTED AND UNDERVALUED IN SOCIETY AND FEMALE STUDENTS OF COLOR ARE AT A LARGER DISADVANTAGE WHEN IT COMES TO ACCESS TO FINANCIAL RESOURCES.” It continues, “STILLA COLLEGE STUDENT HERSELF, MEGAN IS INCREDIBLY PASSIONATE ABOUT THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF EDUCATION AND REMAINS A STRONG ADVOCATE FOR WOMEN PURSUING COLLEGE DEGREE.”
Megan has routinely used her platform to empower women. Most recently, she made her “Saturday Night Live” solo debut with a powerful performance calling out for the protection of Black men and women. The rapper also called out Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron over his failure to bring homicide charges against any of the three officers involved in the execution of a search warrant that left 26-year-old EMT worker Breonna Taylor dead in her Louisville apartment on March 13.
