Per Project HEAL’s website, one of the initiatives include a $1 million pledge for student scholarships at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Named after Travis’ grandfather, the Waymon Webster Scholarship Fund will grant $10,000 scholarships to seniors who have a 3.5 or higher GPA but are facing financial challenges that hinder their chances of graduating.
In a press release obtained by E! News, Travis said his grandfather, who previously served as an educator at Prairie View A&M University, “is a major influence on me and countless others, whose dreams he believed in, whose hopes he invested in, and whose futures he made big,” explaining that he wants to channel the patriarch’s “spirit” into various creative projects.
Other Project HEAL initiatives on the docket include a proposed expansion of the CACT.US Youth Design Center in his hometown and free programs focused on addressing mental health.
