Travis Scott has been in the headlines ever since the disastrous Astroworld tragedy. The “Highest in the Room” rapper is currently embroiled in multiple lawsuits filed by concertgoers and there families. Now he’s getting some good press.
According to TMZ, Travis Scott recently awarded $1 million in scholarships to 100 students at HBCUs who are on track to graduate in the Class of 2022. The massive endorsement is aimed at ensuring the students aren’t affected by last-minute financial hurdles.
“The soon-to-be grads are each getting a $10,000 scholarship from Travis’ previously-established Waymon Webster Scholarship Fund … and the recipients finished their final semester with at least a 3.5 GPA.
“Among the scholars … Florida A&M University pharmacy major Nisha Encarnacion, who is from the U.S. Virgin Islands and paid her own way through college while supporting her mother and daughter.”
Alabama A&M University, Central State University, Jackson State University, Morehouse College, Texas Southern University, Grambling State University, Xavier University of Louisiana, and Prairie View A&M University are among the institutes being covered under the scholarship.
Travis Scott might get a lot of flack for his rage-filled concerts and irresponsible decisions, not to mention the fact that he’s connected to the Kardashian family. It’s hard to hate on him for his incredibly generous act.
