Kevin Hart has surprised 18 students with scholarships to college totaling $600,000. Per the Philadelphia Inquirer, the comedian's Help from the Hart Charity has teamed up with the United Negro College Fund and the Knowledge is Power Program to help students from eight US cities who are attending 11 different historically black college and universities. The students were chosen based on academic and personal achievements and "may receive substantive renewable awards based on need," according to a press release from UNCF, which bills itself as the largest provider of college scholarships for students of color in the US. Hart posted a photo of himself with the recipients to Instagram on Tuesday with a promise. "This is just the beginning people!!!! My “Help From The Hart Charity” is about to do a lot more!!!!!"
