Wale Awards $25,000 Scholarship To Hampton University Student



A Hampton University student who was almost on the brink of not returning to the university due to a financial hardship was blessed with a $25,000 scholarship, according to the Hampton University News.

Lauren Pryor, a sophomore psychology major, was the recipient of a scholarship offered by Hip Hop artist Wale through a radio station contest.

Norfolk Hip Hop station 103 JAMZ presented the award to Pryor who was the 25th caller to their station.

In addition to the monetary award, Pryor was provided a two-day trip to New York City where she was able to attend Wale’s album release party for “The Gifted” at Best Buy Theater.

“Winning this scholarship was truly a blessing,” said Pryor. “Almost not returning to Hampton University in the fall because of expenses, I was exceedingly fortunate to receive this scholarship. It was truly a test of faith.”
