Milo Yiannopoulos, the controversial writer and Conservative has once again shocked everyone by announcing the winners of his White Male Privilege Study Grants. Ten lucky students will be receiving a grant to help towards their college education.
Milo originally began the grant award scheme in retaliation to pervasive opinion that young white males had more privileges in US society, when in fact, much of the data does not show this to be true. Critics of Milo have suggested that he would not actually pay the grants; as Milo has pointed out, these critics are being strangely silent now.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
The majority of the winners will be using their prize money to study STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects. The winners’ schools will receive the payment directly in the summer of 2017, according to the Privilege Grant site. The scholarships will partly fund the winners’ fall 2017 terms.
The grants were awarded based on a simple application (for STEM subjects only) and a one minute vlog explaining how the applicants would make America a better place.
