Diddy gave a $1 million check to Howard University President Wayne A.I. Frederick at Thursday night’s Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour concert at the Verizon Center.
In a Facebook post, Diddy wrote “Howard University is my family!! One of the biggest blessings is to be able to support those who supported me!! TONIGHT is a very special night on this tour!! I donated 1 million dollars to my alma mater Howard University!!”
Howard will create the Sean Combs Scholarship Fund with the money, according to a press release from the university.
Diddy went to Howard, but dropped out. He received an honorary doctorate degree from the university in 2014.
“The University is grateful for Mr. Combs’ ongoing efforts to open doors for talented, hard-working individuals and improve their chances of navigating the way to personal and professional fulfillment,” president Frederick said.
