Megan Thee Stallion has announced she will provide a full scholarship to a student studying at The Roc Nation School of Music, Sports, and Entertainment at Long Island University, Brooklyn. The 'Savage' female rapper will also participate in Long Island University's "Industry Expert Speaker Series" as a guest lecturer.

"Getting an education is incredibly important to me," she stated in a press release. "I still have academic goals that I want to achieve, so if I can use my resources to open doors and create opportunities for at least one student, then it's a victory. It's important that we encourage our students to pursue their passions and put them in positions to become the next game-changer in whichever fields they choose." 

The Grammy award-winning hip-hop star, a student herself at Texas Southern University in her home state, is currently completing coursework for a degree in Health Care Administration. She manages this all while evolving her music career and topping multiple charts, and winning multiple awards. 

Megan is not the only high profiler to team up with the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports, and Entertainment. The school's faculty boasts a stellar list of award-winning and renowned musicians and producers such as 9th Wonder, soprano saxophonist Sam Newsome, and baritone vocalist Colin Levin.

According to its website, the Roc Nation School offers undergraduate degrees in applied music; music technology, entrepreneurship, and production; sports management; sports communication and marketing; and vocal performance. The school begins its class in Fall 2021.

The female MC has also announced her first follow-up single to her debut album 'Good News.' She shared 'Thot Shit' will find her returning to her alter ego -- Tina Snow -- and it'll drop on June 11.
