Rihanna Is About to Start Paying for Fans’ College Education
Earlier today, Rihanna did something pretty unusual for a pop star: she announced that she’s created a global scholarship program to help send international students to college in the US.
According to the program’s website, the scholarship fund will help citizens of Brazil, Barbados, Cuba, Haiti, Granada, Guyana and Jamaica who have already been accepted into an accredited four-year college or university in the US for the 2016-2017 school year.
If Rihanna and her panel of advisors like what they see and decide that yes, they’d like to give some money to you, your award will range from between $5,000 to $50,000 for the next four years, or until you earn your bachelor’s degree. Whichever comes first.
Of course you have to maintain a 2.5 GPA, but that hardly sounds like too much to ask for the privilege of telling everybody you know for the rest of your life that Rihanna paid for your college education.
Plus, you’ll probably get to meet her.
Basically, if it sounds like you fit the criteria she’s looking for, you owe it to the rest of us to apply right now, or at least before June 10 when the window for sending in submissions closes.
Good luck, guys.
