Travis Scott is giving Black college students monetary incentive to become graduates.
Scott awarded $1 million in scholarships to 100 students at HBCUs that are slated to graduate in 2022. Scott’s Waymon Webster Scholarship Fund is donating $10K to each student who graduates with a 3.5 GPA.
The donations went to 38 HBCU seniors from Alabama A&M University, Central State University, Jackson State University, Morehouse College, Texas Southern University, Grambling State University, Xavier University of Louisiana, and Prairie View A&M University.
The scholarships are part of Scott’s Project HEAL, which was established after the Astroworld tragedy.
Travis Scott made a comeback at the Billboard Music Awards, he made his first televised appearance since Astroworld.
Travis performed "Mafia" and "Lost Forever" at the show, where he was intro'd by Diddy and French Montana. Travis has been creeping back into public, as he made his first public performance last week in Miami, and has been doing small sets throughout 2022.
Scott's due to headline a major festival in South America later this year.
