I am very very very proud to announce the launch of my new scholarship “The Stormzy Scholarship” in partnership with Cambridge University. With this scholarship we will be funding and covering the full tuition and maintenance for 2 black students this year and 2 black students in 2019 to study at Cambridge University. We as a minority are still heavily under represented at the top universities and I pray this scholarship serves as a reminder that we are more than capable of studying at places of this caliber. Congratulations to all the A-Level students getting their results today, be proud of yourselves despite what you got and overstand that this is only the tip of the iceberg for what’s to come! This is my proudest venture thus far and I look forward to seeing some young black geniuses go on to achieve at Cambridge via this scholarship. @cambridgeuniversity www.cam.ac.uk/stormzyscholarship for all info. Applications close on Thursday 30th August!

Stormzy Launches University Scholarship for Two Black Students

Stormzy has announced the launch of ‘The Stormzy Scholarship’ that will fund two black students to go to Cambridge University

The ‘Shut Up’ rapper announced the news on A-level results day at his old school in Croydon.

The driving force behind Stormzy’s project was based on the fact he feels black students in the UK are “still a minority and underrepresented at the top universities.” He wants to make a clear reminder that black students are just as capable as any other.

He continued to say on his Instagram: “This is my proudest venture thus far and I look forward to seeing some young black geniuses go on to achieve at Cambridge via this scholarship.”

Applications close on Thursday, August 30.

Good luck students!
