The rapper partnered with Lindenwood last fall to create the Black and White Scholarship, which he awarded to the students during a surprise visit to the school’s campus last week.

Students were required to submit an essay describing their goals for college and future plans.

The winners of this year’s scholarships were Jeremy Word and Terranique Campbell.
