Howard University and Netflix announce creation of $5.4 million scholarship honoring late alumnus Chadwick Boseman
The Chadwick A. Boseman Memorial Scholarship will provide a four-year scholarship covering the entire cost of tuition to students attending the College Of Fine Arts, according to a press release.
The scholarship will first be distributed to a student from each class in the Fall of 2021, before being granted to incoming freshmen every year.
"It is with immense pleasure and deep gratitude that we announce the creation of an endowed scholarship in honor of alumnus Chadwick Boseman, whose life and contributions to the arts continue to inspire,' the president of Howard University, Dr. Wayne A. I. Frederick, said in a release.
This scholarship embodies Chadwick's love for Howard, his passion for storytelling, and his willingness to support future generations of Howard students. I am thankful for the continuous support and partnership of Chadwick's wife, Mrs. Simone Ledward-Boseman, and to Netflix for this important gift.'
