Rapper Nas has college grads saying, “I Can!” That’s because Nas is teaming up with Hennessy and the Thurgood Marshall College Fund to send college grads to an HBCU. Each academic year scholarship recipients of the initiative Hennessy Fellows will receive $20,000 for grad work and an annual $10,000 stipend for additional expenses. In order to qualify, students must do grad work at an accredited HBCU. Ten students will be granted scholarships each year beginning fall 2020.
Nas is honoring the legacy of Thurgood Marshall by supporting HBCU students.https://t.co/kHle044X2U
