Rick Ross Launches Schorlarship Program
MMG Rapper Rick Ross has launched a Schorlarship Program. The scholarship organized in partnership with Wingstop will be awarded to people in the urban areas to pursue higher education.
“To me, a company as huge as Wingstop, we’ve seen so much success doing what we’re doing, let’s take it to the next level. Let’s make ourselves that much more a part of the community…We see the drop out rates. We know what’s going on. So what’s the biggest thing that we could do? Wingstop as a company came together and put together an urban scholarship that’s for the underprivileged, that’s educationally based. That’s me talking to my audience. We need to hear this, and we need to bring all these ideas and concepts to the table and start as soon as possible.”, Ross tells Bossip.
The nonprofit will also give grants to groups working to stop students from dropping out through education and mentoring.
