Listen up college students!

We know it’s not easy paying for school, so that’s why we’ve rounded up a list of different celebrity scholarships to apply for. That’s right, your favorite celebrity just might be able to help you get an education! 

Don’t Stop Scholarship – Megan Thee Stallion

The latest celeb to release a scholarship opportunity is Meg Thee Stallion! She’s giving away two $10,000 scholarships to women of color working towards Bachelor or Associate Degrees. This scholarship aims to support women of color pursuing their dreams! To apply, simply visit this website https://theedontstopscholarship.com/ and “work it, bitch!” Meg even tweeted out this explanation on what the essay should be. 

Jimi Hendrix Scholarship Fund

Are you a passionate guitarist looking to further your education? Look no further. The amazing Jimi Hendrix needs little introduction as he was one of the best guitarists of all time. His legacy lives on in many ways, including The Jimi Hendrix Scholarship Fund. This fund provides scholarships to guitar students.

Oprah Winfrey Scholars Program & Endowed Scholarship Fund

If you’re a student at Morehouse College, there is an opportunity to get a scholarship from Oprah Winfrey herself! Oprah’s Morehouse generosity stretches back to the late 80s and has continued to current years. Her scholarship offers not only financial support, but guidance is awarded to students who excel in academics and community service. Learn more about this opportunity here: https://www.morehouse.edu/oprah/scholarship.html 

Aerosmith Scholarship

This band was originally formed in Boston, so it only makes sense they offer scholarships to Berklee College of Music in the city. This scholarship is solely for music students attending Berklee, so if you plan on attending you should look into it! 


Beyonce and Jay-Z 

Last, but certainly not least, the Queen herself, Beyonce, frequently gives out scholarships each year. Through her organization BeyGOOD, and partnered with the Shawn Carter Foundation, the celebrity has given back to college students in the past years. Although there aren’t any applications open right now, I encourage you to check her website out in the future. 


Let us know if we missed any celebrity scholarships! If you plan on applying to any of these, we wish you the best of luck and hope your favorite celeb can make your education dreams come true!
