With Megan Thee Stallion education always comes first.
Today, the Grammy-winning rapper announced plans to offer one prospective student a full-tuition, four-year scholarship to attend the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports and Entertainment at Long Island University (LIU).
Megan — who’s still in college herself — understands the importance of giving students the resources and tools they need to pursue their higher education. Her hope for this scholarship is to set up at least one student for future success.
“Getting an education is incredibly important to me,” Megan shared in a statement. “I still have academic goals that I want to achieve, so if I can use my resources to open doors and create opportunities for at least one student, then it’s a victory. It’s important that we encourage our students to pursue their passions and put them in positions to become the next game-changer in whichever fields they choose.”
In addition to her scholarship announcement, the Houston artist also shared that she will be participating in LIU’s “Industry Expert Speaker Series,” where she’ll be speaking to current students at the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports and Entertainment about her own personal industry expertise.
Through Megan’s breakout success, she’s been extremely vocal about her educational journey at Texas Southern University where’s she plans to graduate with a degree in healthcare administration in just a few months.
According to REVOLT, she updated fans on the status of her degree back in February after a fan trolled her on Twitter doubting her chances of finishing college.
“Mam I’m ab[ou]t to graduate in the fall and still gone open my facility,” she tweeted. “They swore I wasn’t gone get that degree,” she added in a follow-up tweet. “SIKE.”
As of right now, Megan’s post-graduate plans include opening and managing her own assisted-living facilities in Houston.
Megan’s latest announcement comes on the heels of news that 9th Wonder will be joining the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports & Entertainment’s staff in the fall. The super producer will be working as a visiting professor and artist in residence, where he will be teaching students about Hip-Hop history and how to put together an album.
Students have until July 15 to submit applications for the full-tuition Roc Nation School of Music, Sports & Entertainment scholarship.
