This was originally asked on npr.
P.Diddy's son was given that merit-based scholarship for having a 3.75 GPA and playing football but at the same time, he comes from a wealthy family. Thoughts? Should Justin Combs return it simply because his family is rich and give it to someone who might actually need it or is the fact that he worked for it justifiable in this case?
No because he worked hard for it, he can't live off of daddy forever. If he had o return the money because his family is wealthy then they would have to do the same for every other student that comes from a wealthy family. They would have to make rules that say if your parents make a certain amount of money, you're not allowed to accept scholarships even if you worked hard for it in school...
it was thanks a lot to diddy that he got the scholarship since diddy payed a lot of money to help his son do good in school (top class tutors) but in the end the son did earned it and so i think he should get some recognition for it so let him keep the money and so his father does not look stingy well he should donate money to underprivileged kids so that they can have a chance like his son
Food for thought:What about people that actually need it. Most children are not as financially fortunate as he is and it seems rather inconsiderate of him to keep that money when he can easily be given it by his dad.
I think it's fine if he keeps it personally. He earned it, just because his family is rich, doesn't mean he wants to be taking their money. I'm sure there's a sense of fulfillment he could get from this.
I agree. Maybe he wants to earn his own way, without his dad's name and money. I think he should be entitled to that
I agree it would be nice of him to do that, but I don't think he should be criticized if he chooses not to.
NO..He EARNED it.....Economic status of his parents (rich/poor) matters not.......
Give the money back.. Plain & simple..
