College tuition has shared the limelight with plenty of celebrities throughout the years. From Jay-Z and Beyonce to Jerry Seinfeld, famous actors, musicians and humanitarians have lent a hand to students in their objective to pay for school, and Nicki Minaj is the latest to join the ranks.

It all started on Twitter Saturday night when Minaj posted about a contest opportunity to attend the Billboard Music Awards with her, according to USA Today College. She posted that she had enough money to fly someone from anywhere in the world, and with that, some of her followers asked how far her money could go in helping them.

One follower, @cjbydesign, tweeted back at Minaj, “Well you wanna pay for my tuition?” Her response? Sure! All followers had to do was show proof of having straight A’s.

But Nicki Minaj didn’t stop with helping just one fan on Saturday night. She helped multiple students with everything from summer classes to a professional camera for an audiovisual media course to student loan repayments. Minaj asked certain followers how much they needed and if they would forward their bank info to her.
