Travis Scott’s Plan
Rapper Travis Scott has been keeping busy lately with his recent HBCU scholarship program.
Travis just released the Cactus Jack Foundation and now his main priority is the scholarship program and HBCU schools. Some of the schools he has his mind set on are well-known HBCU colleges in which a few of his family members attended.
Some of the schools on his list include the college his grandfather attended, Prairie View A&M University, and the college his mother attended, Grambling State University. Some others include Morehouse College, Texas Southern University, and Howard University.
Travis wants to give a hand to many students who lost stability during this pandemic and that are struggling financially. He talks to TMZ about his grandfather and how education is powerful.
“My grandfather wanted me to take it all the way through college, I feel there is a power in education so to be able to give someone the opportunity to fulfill that dream as my papa thought for me is amazing.”
Travis has always viewed education as something special and important. Even though he is a successful rapper he did pursue an education in the past, before dropping out. It is cool to see a side of rappers like him no one would’ve ever thought of.
The HBCU scholarship program is not the only thing the Cactus Jack Foundation is working on either. For highschool students, they are currently working on a fashion design program.
To make it possible, The Cactus Jack Foundation linked with “My Brother’s Keeper,” which was started by Barack Obama, and The New School at Parsons School of the Design.
“Parsons is proud to partner with Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Foundation to bring fashion education to high school students who have traditionally been underrepresented in creative disciplines,” the executive dean of The New School’s Parsons School of Design, Rachel Schreiber says.
