The Carter’s have been racking up millions while touring around the globe with their most lucrative concert yet, OTRII. Ready to square up if need be, the Carters recently wrapped up their dates in Atlanta after a crazed fan hopped on stage to see about Jay-Z. This, however, didn’t top the news of the couple’s next investment into the next generation of power players.
In a recent press release, the power couple announced that they would be continuing their philanthropic efforts by investing in student’s higher education. Parkwood Entertainment’s press release stated it would be awarding $100,000 each to 11 lucky high school students for the 2018-2019 school year.
The students will be chosen by 11 Boys and Girls Club of America branches in the following cities: Atlanta, Arlington, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, Orlando, Phoenix, San Diego, Santa Clara, and Seattle.
Based on academic merit and financial need, $100,000 is a sound investment in winner’s future. Dedicated to a university-fund that would be used for the student’s expense throughout college, Sally Mae can hit it to the left!
