Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion partners with Amazon Music Rap Rotation to launch Don’t Stop Scholarship for “college hotties” majoring in any field of study.

The scholarship is currently available to women of color around the world, working towards an associate’s, bachelor’s, or postgraduate degree.

The Don’t Stop Scholarship was named after the rapper’s latest single “Don’t Stop” featuring Young Thug.

The hot girl shared the announcement via Twitter Thursday morning.

“COLLEGE HOT GIRLS THIS ONE IS FOR YOU SO LISTEN UP, ” the WAP rapper writes in all caps in a tweet. “I’M GIVING AWAY 2 10,000 SCHOLARSHIPS TO TWO WOMEN OF COLOR IN ANY FIELD OF STUDY.”

Due to the massive level of applicants the site crashed shortly after The Stallion made the announcement. The following morning the site was up and running.

To apply, applicants must submit their name, school, their field of study, year enrolled at their University, and a personal essay.

Megan shares tips on the application process and what to expect via twitter to her fans and applicants.

“This essay for the scholarship should basically be about yourself,” the rapper writes. “what you are majoring in, and why you need the degree! Doesn’t matter how many words or pages do your best hotties!”

Megan is currently a senior at Texas Southern University majoring in Healthcare Administration.

Early this year, Megan discussed how her personal connection to caregiving turned into a passion for healthcare on “The Tonight Show.”

“I found something that I was passionate about because I had a connection to it,” she told host Jimmy Fallon. “I watched my grandmother take care of my great-grandmother, and I’m like, ‘They need help.’ … So I really want to open up a facility — assisted facility — because I know I can’t be the only person where my family members are taking care of each other. …

“And I wanna give my classmates their jobs that they need when you first get out of college because people don’t wanna give you jobs because you don’t have experience. But if you don’t give me the job, then how am I gonna get the experience?”
