Netflix donates $5.4 million to Howard’s Chadwick Boseman scholarship fund
Netflix is the first donor to the Chadwick A. Boseman Memorial Scholarship, contributing $5.4 million to the scholarship fund established by Boseman’s wife, Simone Ledward-Boseman, for Howard University’s School of Fine Arts.
Boseman, who died of colon cancer last year at the age of 43, graduated from Howard University with a fine arts degree in directing.
In September, Howard University officially renamed its fine arts school the Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts.
The scholarship endowment will provide incoming students in the College of Fine Arts with a four-year scholarship to cover the full cost of tuition.
