Megan Thee Stallion has launched her own scholarship fund that celebrates women of color who are pursuing a college education or postgraduate degree.
The Savage hitmaker joined forces with Amazon Music to award two $10,000 scholarships as part of her Don’t Stop Scholarship Fund, which is named after her latest single, Don’t Stop, featuring Young Thug.
And it turns out the rapper and musician has been working toward a health care administration degree at Texas Southern University, all while she’s been topping the charts over the last year-and-a-half.
‘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,’ she wrote on Instagram in the caption of her promo post.

Along with some of the details of the scholarships, the promo poster also read: ‘2020 has brought so many obstacles, but we keep going.’
The launching of Megan’s own education fund comes on the heels of the musician sharing about how she hopes to inspire other women to realize their dreams.
The Hot Girl Summer hitmaker, who has experienced a meteoric rise in the music industry since early 2019, has been determined to use her ever-growing platform to help inspire young girls around the world.
‘I love the fact that I have a voice, and I love the fact that I do inspire a lot of girls, and I didn’t realize it at first. I was just being me,’ Megan (born Megan Jovon Ruth Pete) told Megan told W magazine in August.
‘Some of the things I say, I realized that some women might really wanna say them. So I just keep all of these things in the back of my mind when I’m writing.’
She went on to point out how the spotlight has changed how she critiques her art.
‘I’m not gon’ say I feel pressure, but sometimes I will get a little tingly because I just want to put out the best music for my fans as possible. I don’t like to disappoint them,’ she added.
‘So when I’m recording, I’m super hard on myself. I’m just always like, okay, I need to go harder than that. I’ll write and rewrite a verse about eight times.’
Megan’s second mixtape, Fever, which dropped in May 2019, helped break her to the mainstream with widespread acclaims from critics.
