La La Anthony is teaming up with Mcdonald’s to provide scholarships to HBCU students through its ‘Black & Positively Golden Scholarship Program’.

She released a statement saying, “I am honored to work alongside McDonald’s in our shared mission to help HBCU students receive the necessary funds to help achieve their dreams of going to college. It’s so important to encourage our youth to dream big and, above all, believe in themselves. I look forward to watching these future leaders of our world and communities shine, achieve their goals, and reach their highest potential.”

Any interested applicants must meet specific criteria and fill out an application through by June 7.

La La is very passionate about this program because she is an HBCU alumnus of Howard University.

She continued by saying, “I’m forever grateful for that and just wish that more people can have that same opportunity to experience what college does for you and how it changes you and prepares you for the real world.”
