Grown-ish is celebrating its second season with a student loan-payoff program. The sitcom stars actress Yara Shahidi, reprising her role as Zoey Johnson, and is centered around the issues of today’s college students.

The Freeform television network has partnered with the scholarship app Scholly to give up to $125,000 to current college students and graduates with outstanding loan debt. The amount of student-loan debt has become a crisis in higher education.

“Student loans are the worst. that’s why @freeform teamed up with @my.scholly to pay off up to $125,000 in student debt.”

According to a press release obtained by EBONY.com, the network is “acknowledging that student loans have crippled a generation of young Americans and are keeping them from achieving their dreams, the program aims to help student loan borrowers pay off debts that may be holding them back from living their best lives. Thus far, Scholly has helped students win over $100 million in scholarships and aided many in reducing their debt.”
