On Thursday, American rapper, singer, and songwriter Megan Thee Stallion announced the launch of a global scholarship to provide $10,000 bursaries to female students of colour. The fund, called “Don’t Stop” is a nod to her recently-released single of the same name with Young Thug, and is dedicated to “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 colour are at a larger disadvantage when it comes to access to financial resources. The Don’t Stop Scholarship Fund (a partnership with Amazon Music’s Rap Rotation) will award the funds to two applicants pursuing a bachelor’s, associate, or postgraduate degree.
This isn’t the first time Meg, whose real name is Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, has provided financial aid to others.
Earlier this year, she sent money to fans struggling to make ends meet during pandemic lockdowns. In 2019, she hosted a pageant for women with a $2,500 USD scholarship prize.
Meg is currently a college student herself, working towards a health administration degree at Texas Southern University.
Women of colour pursuing degrees in all disciplines are invited to visit the scholarship website and apply for consideration.
Like everything Meg does, initiative is already proving to be a smash hit. Shortly after she made the announcement on social media the site was inundated with traffic, causing a temporary crash.
