(AllHipHop News) English Grime artist Stormzy is helping an Oxford University student cross the pond to attend an Ivy League school in the States.

According to the BBC, Stormzy donated £9,000 ($11,588) to Fiona Asiedu’s crowdfunding campaign which was raising money for Harvard University tuition fees and other costs.

Asiedu was able to reach her goal of £12,000 ($15,452) goal in just 24 hours, thanks to the Gang Signs & Prayer album creator.

Stormzy’s camp confirmed the donation was made under his real name before switching it to an anonymous contribution.

Asiedu is seeking to earn a Masters in Human Development and Psychology at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Since the money goal was reached so quickly, Asiedu is extending her #SW2Harvard campaign.

Any funds raised over £14,000 will be used to create a new foundation to support black British students from low-income families attending Oxford or Harvard.
