Netflix, Howard Establish $5.4M Chadwick Boseman Scholarship

Netflix this week announced a $5.4 million Howard University endowed scholarship named in honor of alumnus Chadwick Boseman.

Boseman, a 2000 Howard grad who passed away in August 2020 following a four-year battle with colon cancer, lives on through larger-than-life roles like T’Challa/Black Panther, Jackie Robinson, James Brown, Thurgood Marshall, Stormin’ Norman, and more. Now, his legacy continues in the Chadwick A. Boseman Memorial Scholarship, which will provide incoming HU College of Fine Arts students a four-year grant to cover the full cost of tuition.

“This scholarship embodies Chadwick’s love for Howard, his passion for storytelling, and his willingness to support future generations of Howard students,” HU President Dr. Wayne A. I. Frederick said in a statement, thanking Netflix for “this important gift.”
