According to People, Travis Scott and his Cactus Jack Foundation made a big announcement to help excel the future generation when it comes to education. As a collective, they will be giving up to $1 million in scholarships for 38 Historically Black Colleges and Universities, also known as HBCUs. The outlet reports the money will be awarded to 100 students.
“With Scott’s support, the Waymon Webster Scholarship Fund granted $10,000 scholarships to seniors who have reached academic excellence (averaging 3.5 or higher GPA) but have faced the all-too-common last-minute challenge of financial adversity in the second semester of their senior year,” per a news release obtained by People. This will count as the rapper’s second initiative to support the organization. Scott’s foundation also has strong ties to his family.
According to Complex, the scholarship is actually named after his grandfather Waymon Webster. And that’s not all: His sister, Jordan Webster, who is the project manager of the foundation, is excited about her brother’s efforts to give back and is passionate about his vision. “I know personally how deeply important my grandfather’s academic legacy at HBCUs is to my entire family—to Travis,” she said in a statement. “It means the world to me to be able to work with my brother as he creates hope and makes a real difference for our peers and their families.”
