SAN FRANCISCO (July 20, 2021) –, the scholarship platform committed to fighting student debt through philanthropy, continues its Year of Giving Campaign with a new scholarship. For the campaign’s July chapter, partners with Actor, Athlete, Comedian and Activist Terry Crews for a $20,000 Terry Crews "Creative Courage" Scholarship. In an effort to continue to lift up amazing creatives, the scholarship will provide an incredible opportunity for a struggling artist chasing their dreams. One student will receive $20,000 to use toward their artistic development and education.

Before becoming one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, Terry Crews was a kid in Flint, Michigan with a passion for art. He worked hard honing his skills in painting and music. Scholarships have always been a big part of Terry’s story. Before he earned the football scholarship that eventually launched his professional football career in the NFL, he won an art scholarship. Terry worked hard to pursue his career and get extra funding for school. Today, he pays it forward with the $20,000 Terry Crews "Creative Courage" Scholarship. The scholarship is available to anyone pursuing an education as a musician, artist, animator, architect or another art-related career or hobby.

Terry is a true renaissance man. He has been wildly successful in so many industries and has a variety of incredible skill sets as an actor, comedian, artist, athlete, producer, TV Host and more. Beyond his unquestionable talents, he is an avid activist. As he entertains the world on screen, he works hard to change for the better off-screen by using his voice and career to make a social impact. He has become a source of inspiration for people around the globe. In 2018, Terry even illustrated a children’s book alongside his previous NFL teammate and the book’s author, Ken Harvey. Come Find Me is about two young African-American boys who envision all sorts of careers as pilots, conductors, captains, race car drivers and more. His $20,000 scholarship is yet another effort to inspire and uplift others.

Terry Crews says: “As a kid, I hoped and prayed for a scholarship, and when I was able to earn scholarships for art and football, it changed my life. Now, I’m partnering with to change the life of another artist out there who is struggling and may be worrying that they won’t make it and won’t be able to chase their dreams. You can make it, and I’m here to help.” CEO and Founder, Dror Liebenthal, says: “The entire team at is so thrilled to work with Terry — an impact-focused leader, role model, and one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
