Diddy Offers Full University Scholarship to Deserving Belizean Students

Shyne Barrow

A scholarship opportunity to pursue higher education at Howard University in the United States is being made available to Belizean students who are interested in pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees in technology and other related disciplines.  Earlier today, the Sean “Diddy” Combs Belize Full Scholarship was announced by U.D.P. Party Leader Shyne Barrow.  In a statement issued by the Leader of the Opposition, he said, “education has always been extremely important to my dear brother Diddy and I, thus, in that vein I asked Diddy to make Belize a part of his philanthropic support for his alma mater Howard University, so that at least one Belizean student can get the benefit of attending one of the United States’ most prestigious Historically Black Colleges and Universities”. Late this evening, we spoke with Party Leader Barrow.

“I could have no better gift than the ability to give this present to a Belizean student, thanks to my brother Sean “Diddy” Combs. The Sean “Diddy” Combs Belize full scholarship Howard University, which is one of the most prestigious historically Black College and University, and it will be for either a tech degree, an education agree, or a business degree. What excites me the most is the tech, you know most of the billionaires in the world today are tech, and that gives a unique opportunity to create something that you can furnish from Belize because one of the requirements to qualify to get the scholarship is that you must agree to return to Belize. You can’t go and get the degree and then try to find a job in the United States. This is about nation building, Belize to me we have tremendous talent, we can do absolutely anything. It’s just a matter of time before we dominate the world in a way that we have never seen, and these types of opportunities is what sets that fire and creates that avalanche.”
