The rapper, songwriter, and internet personality Danielle Bregoli, known professionally as Bhad Bhabie, has partnered with Educapital Foundation to create the “Bhad Scholarship” Award. This $1.7M scholarship will help 1,000 students to enroll in technical and trade schools nationwide in addition to providing post graduate entrepreneurial grants and full ride scholarships. Recipients can pursue careers in various in-demand trades.
In partnership with the Educapital Foundation, each “Bhad Scholarship” recipient will receive $1,000 towards their trade school education and 50 graduates will receive $10,000 in start-up capital to help launch their own businesses upon graduation. Additionally, Bhad Bhabie will handpick graduates to receive full-ride scholarships from a $200,000 fund.
“While developing this scholarship program, it was great collaborating with Educapital’s Aisha Rodriguez & Dr. Brenita Mitchell, both amazing women giving amazing opportunities to the next generation of entrepreneurs,” said Bhad Bhabie. “We didn’t want to just give out tuition funds but also help the grads with startup capital to launch their own businesses. I can’t wait to see what these young hustlers do.”
“We are incredibly grateful for our partnership with Bhad Bhabie that allows us to continue our mission to eliminate poverty through trade school education,” said Dr. Brenita Mitchell, Founder of Educapital Foundation. “I have seen firsthand the role education plays in opening doors to building wealth and creating successful career opportunities. By removing financial barriers, the ‘Bhad Scholarship’, will help students spend more time focusing on their studies, and help them achieve their lifelong dreams.”
For many young entrepreneurs, the American dream has changed. A 2022 CNBC report found that “about 60% of teenagers are more interested in someday starting their own business instead of working a traditional job, according to a March 1 survey from Junior Achievement USA.” The online poll of 1,000 teens aged 13 to 17 was conducted by Wakefield Research.
The “Bhad Scholarship” has open enrollment and applications are being accepted via the website https://bhadscholarships.com. Applicants must be at least 14 years or older to apply.
