Travis Scott Donates 1 Million to HBCU Students

Travis Scott is giving back huge to his fellow black community. Travis Scott just donated 1 million to ensure black college students walk across the stage with their diplomas.

One hundred lucky HBCU students who are on track to graduate in the class of 2022 got rewarded 1 million collectively. However, his goal was to take out any last-second financial hurdles that would have prevented some of these students from not graduating.

Each of the one hundred graduates will be getting a $10,000 scholarship from the Waymon Webster Scholarship Fund. Each of the recipients finished the semester with a GPA of 3.5.

Meet Some of Travis Scott’s Scholarship Winners:

Some of these students who received the scholarship have accomplished great things:

  1. Florida A&M student Nisha Encarnacion, a pharmacy major from the U.S. Virgin Islands, paid her way through college. Also, while paying her way through, she supported her mother and daughter.
  2. Chisom Okwor attended Fisk University as a computer science major. His goal is to transform upcoming countries in Africa with new technology.
  3. Jordan Massey attended North Carolina Central University as a broadcast journalism major. She was so passionate about getting her degree that she took on a boatload of debt.

Travis Scott’s sister is who runs and manages the scholarship fund. She also attended Howard University and recently graduated.

Some notable schools that these HBCU students attended were Jackson State University, Morehouse College, Texas Southern University, Grambling State University, and Central State University.

Travis Scott also has another project called “Project HEAL.” This 1 million donated was a part of Project HEAL.

After the tragic events at Astroworld, Project HEAL was Scott’s first philanthropic organization he created. Ten people passed away as a result of injuries at the concert.

Finally, Travis Scott is slowly getting back to performing. His latest appearances have been at the Billboard Music Awards and a local Miami nightclub.
