Megan decided to partner with Amazon Music’s Rap Rotation to give away two different $10k scholarships to women of color working hard to pursue an “associates, bachelors, or post-graduate degree in any field of study.”
The website continues, saying, “In honor of all the young women out there who don’t stop working hard to get their education!”
“Women remain underrepresented and undervalued in society and female students of color are at a larger disadvantage when it comes to access to financial resources.”
Megan announced the scholarship on social media, tweeting, “COLLEGE HOT GIRLS THIS ONE IS FOR YOU SO LISTEN UP IM GIVING AWAY 2 10,000 SCHOLARSHIPS TO TWO WOMEN OF COLOR IN ANY FIELD OF STUDY APPLY NOW”

Comments started pouring in, with many women pointing out that the website for the scholarship crashed, but the good news is it’s now back up and working.
All you have to do to apply is get out your laptop, head on over to the website, and fill out the form that requests your first name, last name, email, zip code, birthday, institution currently enrolled at, field of study, and year of study.
You also will need to attach an essay to talk about why you would be a good fit for the scholarship, but it’s not clear how many words it will need to be or what topics you should specifically discuss.
