Shyne Launches Howard University 'Sean Diddy Combs Scholarship' in Effort to Send Belizean Students

Former rapper Shyne has announced a brand new scholarship named after Diddy to send a Belizean student to study abroad in the United States.

The rapper-turned-politician announced on Instagram the Sean Diddy Combs Scholarship on Wednesday.

"I am extremely happy to announce the SEAN DIDDY COMBS BELIZE FULL SCHOLARSHIP to HOWARD UNIVERSITY!" Shyne wrote.  "Ensuring access to education for those young people who are financially challenged is the only way Belize will ever realize her full potential."

The post continued to outline the scholarship's purpose and the reasoning behind the scholarship being named after Diddy.

"Education has always been extremely important to my dear brother @diddy and I; thus, in that vein, I asked Diddy to make Belize a part of his philanthropic support for his alma mater Howard University so that at least one Belizean Student can get the benefit of attending one of the United States most prestigious HBC Universities," he wrote.  "I thank Diddy for always supporting my efforts to help Belize in every way possible."

To qualify for the scholarship, students must come from a financially challenged home, have a 3.0 GPA, and write an essay about the field they plan to pursue and how it could help Belize.  After their studies, students must return to Belize to contribute to the development of its Nation.
