The Men of Morehouse College
The Oprah Winfrey Scholarship at Morehouse College, a historically black college for men in Atlanta, has made the college education of 415 young men possible. "Not receiving a college education was certain death," one recipient named Shaka says.

"I was on the verge of being kicked out of school because my parents were unable to pay my tuition," another recipient named Van says. "Without the Oprah Scholarship, I would have never become a physician."

In the spirit of paying it forward, Tyler has a big announcement. "Many of these Morehouse graduates that you educated, Oprah, are going to do just that," Tyler says. "Together they pledged more than $300,000 of their own money to educate future Morehouse men."
