Sean "Diddy" Combs has pledged $1 million to his alma mater, Howard University, to establish the Sean Combs Scholarship Fund. The Bad Boy boss made the announcement of the gift on Thursday night (Sept. 22) during a Washington, D.C. stop on the Bad Boy Family reunion tour. According to WUSA 9, Combs presented the giant check to Howard president Dr. Wayne Frederick on stage at the Verizon Center as part of the first donation to the Fund.
"One of the biggest blessings is getting the chance to one day be able to give back,” Combs said. “And to support the people that supported you... If I didn't get some help, I wouldn't be where I'm at today." The rap impresario attended Howard for two years in the 1990s, but left before graduating; he received an honorary doctorate from the school in 2014.
