Megan Thee Stallion is giving one lucky student at the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports & Entertainment a four-year scholarship, covering the total cost of tuition at the Brooklyn Long Island University school. 

COMPLEX reports that the Grammy-award-winning rapper currently enrolled at Texas Southern University studying healthcare administration will also be an occasional guest lecturer at the school through L.I.U.’s Industry Expert Speaker Series.  Last month, the program announced hip-hop producer 9th Wonder would also be a faculty member.

“If I can use my resources to open doors and create opportunities for at least one student, then it's a victory," said Megan in a statement. "It's important that we encourage our students to pursue their passions and put them in positions to become the next game-changer in whichever fields they choose." 

Jay-Z announced that his label Roc Nation, in collaboration with Brooklyn Long Island University, announced the opening of the school last fall. According to a report by COMPLEX, enrollment will begin in the fall of 2021, with 25% of the freshman class eligible to receive Roc Nation Hope Scholarships. 

Desiree Perez, Roc Nation’s CEO, lauded the partnership with L.I.U., saying it is “a true investment in our community and young people in Brooklyn, in New York City, and beyond.”
