From Harper’s BAZAAR
Megan Thee Stallion has launched a new scholarship fund to support women of color.
The rapper has partnered with Amazon Music’s Rap Rotation to create the “Don’t Stop” fund. As the scholarship’s website reveals, “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.” Megan Thee Stallion is currently studying for a bachelor’s degree in health administration, alongside her super-successful rap career.
On Instagram, Stallion announced the prize and wrote, “COLLEGE HOTTIES LISTEN UP BECAUSE THIS ONE IS FOR YOU ‼️‼️‼️ I AM GIVING AWAY TWO 10,000 DOLLAR SCHOLARSHIPS TO WOMEN OF COLOR PURSUING A DEGREE IN ANY FIELD OF STUDY IN ANY PART OF THE WORLD🔥🔥🔥 APPLY RIGHT NOW LINK IN MY BIO #DONTSTOPSCHOLARSHIP 🐎 let’s get these degrees ladies 💪🏽.”
In June, Megan Thee Stallion opened up to People about her decision to keep studying despite experiencing huge chart success. “I want to get my degree because I really want my mom to be proud… She saw me going to school before she passed.” Stallion’s mother, Holly Thomas, died in March 2019 from brain cancer.
Stallion also revealed, “My grandmother that’s still alive used to be a teacher, so she’s on my butt about finishing school. I’m doing it for me, but I’m also doing it for the women in my family who made me who I am today.”
