Stormzy lanceert studiebeurs voor Cambridge University


Stormzy slaat de handen ineen met Cambridge University om meer zwarte studenten naar de universiteit te krijgen. In samenwerking met de prestigieuze universiteit lanceert hij een studiebeurs die een bacheloropleiding tot maximaal vier jaar betaalt. De artiest kiest twee student uit voor dit jaar en twee studenten voor het jaar 2019. “It’s so important for black students, especially, to be aware that it can 100% be an option to attend a university of this calibre.” zegt hij over de beurs. “We’re a minority, the playing ground isn’t level for us and it’s vital that all potential students are given the same opportunity.” voegt hij daar nog aan toe.

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! #StormzyScholarship ❤️🙏🏿💪🏿
