Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj is paying for some of her fans to go to college, Billboard reports.

The “Barbie Tingz” rapper announced the Student of the Game scholarship on Friday was awarded to 37 college students. It will pay off their college tuition or student loans.

In May 2017, Minaj randomly paid off students’ loan balances and said at the time that she was going to launch her charity “very soon.”

She informed Student of the Game recipients that they won and said that her fans could win multiple scholarships, but not in consecutive years.

The winners reacted with excitement on social media.
