The radio personality recently graced South Carolina State University’s homecoming and made a special announcement to its students.

As a tribute to his mother, Julie Ford McKelvey who is an alumnus of SCSU from the class of 75, the popular host presented the university’s female student body with a scholarship fund also named after his mother.

The Ford Family Endowed Scholarship Fund as Charlamagne revealed in an Instagram post is dedicated to providing scholarships to Black women in South Carolina.

It is particularly for those who will be majoring in English as an ode to Charlamagne’s mother’s course, as well as those interested in pursuing Communications as a nod to his own career.

Likewise, women pursuing the path of mental health professionals will also be eligible for the scholarship.

Charlamagne’s post came with a clip of the moment he revealed his $250,000 scholarship check during SCSU’s homecoming day. He also had a further message encouraging others to invest in historically Black colleges and universities.

“Always remember investing in an HBCU is investing in the future of our people so the next time an HBCU ask for money, open that wallet. It’s a blessing to be a blessing! All Praises Due To God!!!”

On a side note, Charlamagne added, “P.S. Speaking of GOD my creator told me to announce that I’m tapped out until February so to all friends and family don’t even consider calling me this holiday season for nothing. Have a blessed day.”
