Kardinal Offishall and employees at Universal Music Canada have banded together to launch a new scholarship program supporting Black high school students in their post-secondary education.

The Canadian record label says it's formed BLACK Label Coalition in partnership with the Pinball Clemons Foundation, an effort that will see Universal commit $250,000 to promising young Black leaders over the next five years.

The Clemons Foundation, which supports marginalized youth with a goal of entering the workforce, will cover the balance of the student's academic expenses, the record label says. Jason Harrow, a Universal music executive also known as hip hop artist Kardinall Offishall, took a foundational role in establishing the BLACK Label Coalition -- which stands for Businesses Levelling Access to Change and Knowledge.

Universal Music Canada chief executive Jeffrey Remedios said while the scholarship isn't specifically related to the music industry, he believes it "further reflects our company's commitment to bring about impactful, meaningful change."
