Lupita Nyong'o & 'Black Panther' Cast Surprise Student With Scholarship at THR's Power 100 Women In Entertainment!

Lupita Nyong’o happily strikes a pose while attending The Hollywood Reporter’s Power 100 Women In Entertainment held at Milk Studios on Wednesday (December 5) in Los Angeles.

The 35-year-old Oscar-winning actress and her Black Panther co-stars Chadwick Boseman and Danai Gurira were on hand at the gala to present a new scholarship — The Black Panther Scholarship — created by Walt Disney Studios, which gave one girl from THR‘s Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program a scholarship to Loyola Marymount University, worth $250,000.

The program, now in its ninth year, is executed in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles. “We know that if we want to live in a world that looks more like Wakanda, the first step is you invest in women and girls,” Danai said (via THR), who received a loud round of applause from the audience.

Also in attendance at the gala was Awkwafina, Lena Dunham, Ali Wong, Hannah Gadsby and Loni Love.
