(AllHipHop News) Rap star T.I. is honoring his late sister by providing some valuable resources to the local community.

The Atlanta rap star has teamed up with the United Negro College Fund to create the Precious Chapman Scholarship Fund.

The new fund will provide cash for a deserving student who needs help pursuing a college degree.

This year’s fund has already awarded a $25,000 scholarship to a woman named Tierani Scott. Scott is a single mother attending Philander Smith College in Little Rock, Arkansas.

T.I.’s sister Precious died at the age of 66, after she was in a car accident triggered by an asthma attack.
