Bhad Bhabie Launches $1.7M Scholarship For Students & Entrepreneurs

The Bhad Scholarship Award, established by Bhad Bhabie, will act as the “only national foundation to focus its efforts on trade school education for the country’s most underserved, impoverished students.”

A press statement states that the scholarship will be offered in collaboration with the Educapital Foundation and that it will aim to give $1.7 million to 1,000 students who are either enrolled in technical and trade school programs or recent graduates who want to start their own businesses.

The awardees will each receive $1,000 for their studies, and 50 graduates will each receive $10,000 to start their own enterprises. The graduates who will receive “full-ride scholarships from a $200,000 fund will be hand-picked by Bhad Bhabie. Students who desire to engage in in-demand vocations such pharmacy technician, cosmetology, the business of cannabis, cyber security, e-commerce, and more will be supported by the Bhad Scholarship.

“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,” Bhabie said. “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.”

Bhad Bhabie’s Collab For The Grant

Educapital Foundation’s founder, Dr. Brenita Mitchell, stated that the organization was “extremely thankful” for Bhad Bhabie’s collaboration.

” [The partnership] allows us the continue our mission to eliminate poverty through trade school education. I have seen firsthand the role education plays in opening doors to building wealth and creating successful career opportunities,” she said. “By removing financial barriers, the Bhad Scholarship will help students spend more time focusing on their studies, and help them achieve their lifelong dreams.”

The 19-year-old rapper claimed in an interview that, before her hip hop career took off, she had considered a job as a nail technician. She also stated that she plans to start making more mogul moves in the upcoming years.

“I want to get into owning more businesses,” she stated. “I want to own a nail salon. I want to hopefully end up having it become a franchise and putting them in multiple different areas.”

She also said elsewhere, “I know that there’s a lot of kids out there that really want to get real jobs and want to work hard, but they just don’t have the money to provide it. I thought it was an amazing idea.”
