Just when we thought we couldn't love Megan Thee Stallion more than we already do, she proves us wrong. The 'WAP' rapper, and just overall Queen, has created a new college scholarship for women of color. 

Megan has teamed up with Amazon Music's Rap Rotation to help black and brown women get an education with the launch of the Don't Stop scholarship, an initiative awarding $10,000 to two lucky women. 

Announcing the news on her Instagram page, Megan shared a poster of the scholarship, writing: "College hotties listen up because this one is for you‼️‼️‼️ I am giving away two 10,000 dollar scholarships to women of color pursuing a degree in any field of study in any part of the world 🔥🔥🔥... Let's get these degrees ladies 💪🏽". 

The rapper has been vocal about juggling both her chart-topping music career and her health administration degree, which she studies part time online at Texas Southern University. 

Speaking to People earlier this year, Megan explained that she would complete her degree despite receiving chart-topping success in the music industry to honour her late mother, who passed away in 2019. 

"I want to get my degree because I really want my mom to be proud. She saw me going to school before she passed," she said. 

As stated on the 'Don't Stop' scholarship website, the funds are dedicated to supporting women of color, who have historically  been disproportionately marginalized in accessing 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," reads the website. 

The scholarship is available for women studying for a associate, bachelor, or post-graduate degree in any field and in any part of the world. So if you fit the criteria then don't miss out, applications are now open. All you have to do is provide some personal details, as well as the name of your course, the year you'll be studying and a written essay. 

Good luck!
