Travis Scott Talks About His Donation
Scott said in a press statement about the donation: “Excellence abounds in every Black household, but too often opportunity does not – and Black students are left behind or counted out. So that’s what my family and I set out to change. We congratulate all 100 scholarship recipients this year. I know we will see great things from them – and we are already looking forward to increasing our work next year.”
“In a warm and tremendously thoughtful gesture, Mr. Scott has made a lifelong impact on the 100 Waymon Webster Scholarship recipients,” Daniel Moss, Executive Director of the HBCU Foundation stated. “To have now eased, even slightly, the financial burden on these deserving HBCU graduates, Mr. Scott has set into motion a kind of investment that will pay infinite dividends into our communities for decades to come.”
Scott gave millions earlier this year to establish/provide free mental health programs for underprivileged children. As well as extend the creative design program that his Cactus Jack Foundation now offers.
