Sean Combs donated $1 million to Howard University last night [Thursday, September 22], while he was in Washington D.C. for the Bad Boy Family reunion tour. Diddy’s pledge went towards creating the Sean Combs Scholarship Fund.

The scholarship will help students pursuing a business degree, and it will give those students opportunities to gain experience at Bad Boy Records or Revolt TV. Diddy joins other Hip Hop legends with scholarships, like Nas, who has the Nasir Jones Hip Hop Fellowship at Harvard University.


At the event, Diddy spoke about what Howard University meant to his life:

“I didn’t graduate from Howard. I was blessed to get my honorary degree but that doesn’t tell the whole story, because the only reason why I was able to chase my dreams was the empowerment that Howard gave me, the support that they gave me, the first two years.”
