A year ago, actor Chadwick Bosman died of cancer. Now a US university, along with streaming giant Netflix, has launched a scholarship in his name to support students at the Academy of Arts.
One year after the death of “Black Panther” star Chadwick Bosman, a মিল 1 million scholarship was established in his name for film students. Howard University in Washington DC has announced that the facility, along with the Netflix streaming service, will provide $ 5.4 million in tuition for selected scholarship holders. Bosman died of colon cancer in August 2020 at the age of 43.
The first four grants this fall will be for acting, dance and theater students at Howard University’s Academy of Fine Arts. The building is named after Bosman. The university has an African-American tradition and is predominantly attended by blacks. Bosman would have been “proud,” the actor’s widow, Simon Ledward-Bosman, said in a statement. During her lifetime, her husband worked to promote young storytellers.
The star studied film directing at the university and earned her bachelor’s degree in 2000. He became world famous as the king’s son T’Challa in the comic adaptation “Black Panther”. She won the posthumous Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama in March for her most recent role in the jazz drama Mother Rainy’s Black Bottom.
