The rapper offered to pay fans college fees via Twitter but shes not the first celebrity to provide financial assistance for school studies
Forget the bank of mum and dad. In the age of broken promises and soaring tuition fees, could it be that the best way to get an education is via the bank of Beyonc and Baldwin? Nicki Minaj is the latest celebrity to offer to pay fans college fees, inviting her 20 million Twitter followers to Show me straight As that I can verify w/ur school and Ill pay it. Who wants to join THAT contest?!?! Judging by the 25,000 retweets and her promise to do some more in a month or 2, an extended world tour may be impending.
Thankfully, in a world where the annual cost of getting an education regularly runs into five figures, there are many more celebrity scholarships out there
To mark the one year anniversary of the release of Lemonade, Beyonc announced four scholarships awarded to four US colleges to encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident. The scholarship is open to female students pursuing studies in creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies.
