Comedian and actor Kevin Hart has heart. The movie star teamed up with an organization called Knowledge Is Power Program (KIPP) and the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) to award 18 scholarships to students that will be attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Hart’s donation came from his Help From the Hart Charity in the amount of $300,000, which was matched by KIPP. The 18 students, selected based on academic achievement and accomplishments, will be attending 11 different HBCUs.
