Travis Scott has just launched Cactus Jack Foundation, a charitable organization whose mission is to empower youth through education and creative resources.

Scott’s foundation signed a multi-year partnership with the city of Houston and Parsons School of Design. One of the foundation’s first initiatives will be a scholarship program at HBCU that’s named after Scott’s grandfather Waymon Webster. The scholarship will cover a student’s tuition fees until the end of the next academic year (2020-2021); Scott has already hand-picked the initial round of students. “Waymon Webster was a Dean of the Prairie View A&M graduate school,” said Scott in a press release. “My grandfather wanted me to take it all the way through college, I feel there is a power in education so to be able to give someone the opportunity to fulfill that dream as my papa thought for me is amazing.”

Scott’s foundation also partnered with Parsons to bring a new fashion design program to Houston high schoolers. “Parsons is proud to partner with Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Foundation to bring fashion education to high school students who have traditionally been underrepresented in creative disciplines,” said Rachel Schreiber, executive dean of The New School’s Parsons School of Design. “Parsons and Travis Scott share a deep commitment to educating young designers who are just beginning their exploration of fashion and design. We are excited to collaborate with the Cactus Jack Foundation to offer this immersive course led by Parsons award-winning faculty.”

In other news, Travis Scott, Post Malone and A$AP Rocky will be headlining Rolling Loud Miami 2021.
