21 Savage has established a $100,000 scholarship fund for his Bank Account Financial Literacy Campaign.
For the past few years, the “No Heart” rapper has been teaching financial responsibility to the youth in Atlanta through his popular program. In conjunction with his Leading By Example foundation and Chime, the campaign will provide a six-course online program to students in grades 9th through 12th. Upon completion, the scholars will have a chance to apply for one of the 100 scholarships valued at $1,000 each.
21 and Chime officially teamed up in October of last year to help teenagers learn healthy financial habits as they transition into adulthood.
“I just wanted to come up with something that helps kids have some understanding of what to do with that money,” the rapper stated in a promo video for the program.
Invest in yourself, learn the right money moves and empower the next generation. That’s why I’m bringing back my Bank Account scholarship with @chime for round 2 !!! We’re giving $1000 scholarships to 100 students between 9th -12th grade. Learn more at https://t.co/92Euv741XW pic.twitter.com/QmVvyzPxrB— Saint Laurent Don (@21savage) November 18, 2021
