HOUSTON – Fresh off a months-long hiatus, Megan Thee Stallion continues to prove that education is a top priority.
The Houston rapper announced Wednesday that she is offering a full-ride scholarship for the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports and Entertainment at Long Island University in New York. She said the financial assistance covers all four years of the degree program.
The scholarship application deadline is July 15. Click here to apply.
In August 2020, Long Island University and Roc Nation announced the partnership and formation of the school with the inaugural semester in Fall 2021.
The Roc Nation School offers five undergraduate degrees: applied music, music technology, entrepreneur and production, sports communication and marketing, sports management and vocal performance, according to the university’s website.
The school plans to support debt-free education for 25% of its enrolled students by offering a number of scholarships, while also providing personal mentorship, community engagement, and career and internship connections to its students.
Prospective students can apply for the Megan Thee Stallion scholarship starting Fall 2021. The application requires a sample of the artist’s music and a statement on why they would make a great candidate for the scholarship.
This is not the first time the Grammy award-winning entertainer, whose real name is Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, has provided scholarships for her fans. In 2020, she gave away two $10,000 scholarships to women of color.
“I’m helping my hotties pursue their dreams,” she said. “Education has always been important to me.”
Megan, who is also studying health care administration at Texas Southern University in Houston, said she plans to open up senior living facilities in Houston after she graduates.
