Video: Diddy’s Son Criticized For Accepting $54K Scholarship

May 31, 2012 · Posted in Videos · 8 Comments 

Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, recently received a $54,000 merit-based scholarship to attend UCLA and participate in the storied football program. Justin Combs graduated from High School with a 3.75 GPA.

Taxpayers in Los Angeles feel that because Justin’s father is worth $500 million, he should give back the scholarship so that other needy students can use the money to attend UCLA. They say that Diddy should pick up the bill instead.

Should the Combs family give back the scholarship money or should Justin pay for his own education with the money that he’s earned, although his father is worth $500 million?

    Scholarships of this kind are purposely given to students who are entering intense sport teams who induce serious amounts of revenue from the state.. If they should blame anyone, they should blame UCLA, and the system.
    If anything, he should make his son keep it. Scholarships force some athlete-students to keep up a certain GPA. Given that he had a 3.75, he could excel in some degree, perhaps business like his father.

    He earned this scholarship the fact that his father is rich has nothing to do with what he earned. He shouldn’t be criticized because millions of students from rich families receive scholarships, especially at UCLA. Why should this case be any different? because his father is a rich black music mogul (celebrity).

    no he doesn’t have to, and I don’t think he should if hes gonna give money to someone give it to a charity or a needy country college isn’t even necessary, and the people sayin this stuff are just jumping to things without even trying to get to know the situation which proves mo money mo problems.

    This is kind of why I wish schools would be more like the one I go to, and can afford to give strictly need-based scholarship… yeah, Justin may deserve his scholarship, but to treat all students EQUALLY would be ideal… yeah, diddy should pay money to the school too, anyway.
