Charlamagne Tha God decider to put his money where his mouth is by surprising students at South Carolina State University with a $250k scholarship fund check during the school’s homecoming game. Charlamagne’s mother is a school alum, hence the radio star’s decision to provide the scholarship in honour of her and his grandmother. He shared his presentation of the check via Instagram.
“Today was South Carolina States homecoming and I had the honor of announcing “The Ford Family Endowed Scholarship Fund” named after my mother and my grandmothers maiden names,” Charla’s caption read to a video of the occasion. “We will be providing scholarships to black women in South Carolina who Major in English, (my mother’s major) Communications, (because I’m a Radio/TV Guy), and for any sister that wants to be a mental health professional,” he explained.
Charlamagne’s caption continued, “Always remember investing in an HBCU is investing in the future of our people so the next time an HBCU asks for money, open that wallet,” before jokingly adding, “I’m tapped out until February so to all friends and family, don’t even consider calling me this holiday season for nothing.”
Much love to Charlamagne Tha God for his generous contribution towards an amazing cause!
