Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira along with pop star Ke$ha, presented $1.8 million in college scholarships to aspiring female students on Wednesday in 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,” Gurira said during The Hollywood Reporter‘s 2018 Women in Entertainment event.

The trio was on hand to present a new scholarship called The Black Panther Scholarship, which was created by Walt Disney Studios. The scholarship, which is worth $250,000 to Loyola Marymount University, was presented through the Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program to 17-year-old Kalis Coleman from Inglewood, California, who plans to become a pediatric dermatologist.
