Stormzy Launches “The Stormzy Scholarship” For Black Students

English rapper of Ghanaian descent, Michael Ebenezer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jnr, popularly known as Stormzy has announced the launch of his new scholarship program called “The Stormzy Scholarship”.

He is embarking on this scholarship program by partnering with the Cambridge University, whereby his scholarship will fund and cover the full tuition and maintenance of 2 black students this year and 2 black students in 2019 to study at the Cambridge University.

This was what the comment added to his post on Instagram:

“We as a minority are still heavily underrepresented at the top universities and I pray this scholarship serves as a reminder that we are more than capable of studying at places of this caliber. Congratulations to all the A-Level students getting their results today, be proud of yourselves despite what you got and overstand that this is only the tip of the iceberg for what’s to come! This is my proudest venture thus far and I look forward to seeing some young black geniuses go on to achieve at Cambridge via this scholarship”.
