Oxford University denies rejecting Stormzy scholarship

The University of Oxford has denied rejecting an offer from rapper Stormzy to fund a scholarship scheme for two black students.
The British grime artist claims the university turned down his scholarship idea, which was then taken up by the University of Cambridge.
Oxford said it had spoken with Stormzy's management and clarified it is keen to work with him "on inspiring more young people to study" at the university.In a statement on Twitter, Oxford said: "We have not received or turned down a proposal for student support from Stormzy and have been speaking to his team this morning to establish what happened."We recognise the importance of Stormzy's support and share his ambition in encouraging more black students to take up university education."
We have spoken with Stormzy's management and clarified we are keen to work with him further, whether this is through @OxfordACS or the University directly, on inspiring more young people to study at Oxford.— Oxford University (@UniofOxford) November 8, 2018
