Stormzy Announces Cambridge University Scholarship for Black Students

Stormzy took to instagram to announce that his #Merky imprint and Cambridge University are starting a new fund for youths coming from a disadvantaged background. “The Stormzy Scholarship” will see 2 black youths in 2018 and 2019 have their full tuition and maintenance paid for at the university. Read Stormzy’s statement below.

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 for all info. Applications close on Thursday 30th August! #StormzyScholarship ❤️🙏🏿💪🏿”
