Kevin Hart teamed up with the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) and Knowledge Is Power Program (KIPP) to surprise 18 students with scholarships to complete their college degrees.

Hart, 39, from Philadelphia, took to Instagram to give a special shout-out to the eight kids from his hometown who were among the chosen 18.

Along with his partners, the comedian’s “Help From The Hart Charity” was able to award a whopping $600,000 to the students:

Hart said in a statement, according to The Philadelphia Tribune: “Education and knowledge are powerful. I just wanted to do my part in providing opportunities for our future leaders, especially from my Philly hometown, and show support for HBCUs.

“This is just the beginning; trust me when I tell you there are a lot more kids who want to go to college who don’t have the money to make it happen.”

The 18 students attended 11 historically black colleges and universities in eight different communities. The recipients received the honour based on their “academic and personal accomplishments.”

John Fisher, chair of the KIPP Foundation Board of Directors, continued: “Nothing brings me greater joy than to see the hard work of these 18 KIPP students recognized by Kevin Hart and UNCF through this generous scholarship program.

“We are incredibly grateful to both UNCF and Kevin Hart for their partnership and support to help our students thrive in college and achieve their dreams.”
