Travis Scott is handing out $1 million in scholarships to grads from HBCUs. The soon-to-be grads are each getting a $10,000 scholarship from Travis’ previously-established Waymon Webster Scholarship Fund … and the recipients finished their final semester with at least a 3.5 GPA.


Among those receiving the money are pharmacy major Nisha Encarnacion at Florida A&M University, who is from the U.S. Virgin Islands and paid her own way through college while supporting her mother and daughter.  Fisk University computer science major Chisom Okwor is hoping to help transform developing countries in Africa, and North Carolina Central University broadcast journalism major Jordan Massey.
