Travis Scott Launches $5M Philanthropic Project

In an obvious attempt to make up for the massive fall out from his 2021 Astroworld festival debacle, Travis Scott has pledged $5 million to community causes via his newly-launched Project Heal.

In addition to his philanthropic scheme that will start with $1 million in scholarships for students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), the rapper (born Jacques Webster) is launching the Waymon Webster Scholarship Fund, which will provide $10,000 grants to seniors with GPAs of at least 3.5 who risk not graduating due to financial adversity. 

In hopes that the scholarship program will help 100 students earn diplomas, the musician stated:

“My grandfather was an educator who made a difference in thousands of young lives throughout his life. He is a major influence on me and countless others, whose dreams he believed in, whose hopes he invested in, and whose futures he made big.” “It’s in his spirit that we are creating projects and programs that will look to the future of our communities and create hope and excellence in as many lives as possible.”

Applications for the Waymon Webster Scholarship Fund are now open.
