Will.I.Am. NOT Being A Douche!

He's doing good things with his scholarship fund!

Will.i.am's is sending kids to college with his i.am scholarship fund, coming up with the idea after receiving a big paycheck for deejaying a couple years ago. He explains:

"I did the math and I could send three kids to school. It's one thing to make it – and you've got your own apartment, or house, or car – and you keep it for you. That's not making it. Making it is spreading it."

"You watch the news and you've got Obama talking about our health reform, you got Al Qaeda, you have the economy, and nobody's talking about education. And that is the scariest, because we could have a nation full of dummies."

Good point — education is SO important!

In addition to receiving their tuition paid, the scholarship recipients also get the opportunity for an internship at Dipdive.com, will.i.am's social networking site and a job there after graduation.

This year the scholarship fund will offer at least FIVE new four-year scholarships to students who wish to study film and television, motion graphics and animation, journalism and computer science.

Awesome!

    Excuse me, but President Obama is constantly talking about the paramount importance of education and the fact that the U.S. needs to catch up with the rest of the civilized world. Read a newspaper, idiot.

    kudos for spreading the positive message that will.i.am is trying to help those in need! In this time of superb greed, it's nice to see celebs getting their name out there for doing something positive.

    GOOD FOR WILL :D It's refreshing to see people who earn more money than most of the world will ever see spreading it and helping their fellow man.

    I still don't like Black Eyed Peas but now I can respect Will.I. Am
