Some hard-core Nicki Minaj fans can now say their favorite rapper is paying for them to go to college.

The “Chun-Li” artist and entrepreneur awarded 37 of her biggest devotees her “Student of the Game” scholarship on Friday, pledging to pay off either their college tuition or student loans.

Minaj’s charitable efforts began in May 2017, when she posted a few students’ names with a total of their loans, school expenses and summer classes she spontaneously paid off via her Instagram. She announced in the caption she was launching her “official charity for Student Loans/Tuition Payments VERY SOON.”

She then started her “Student of the Game” scholarship, which informed its first round of winners last month and finalized the recipient pool Friday on Minaj’s wesbite. She informed her Twitter followers that winners are eligible to win the scholarship multiple times, but not in consecutive years.

A handful of the winners took to social media to share their excitement over the news and their love for Minaj. See the tweets below:
