Last night Oprah was at UMass Lowell and helped to raise $3 million to launch the Oprah Winfrey Scholarship Fund.

The school had already raised $1.5 million through ticket sales and sponsorships for the event to see Oprah, but there was more to be made that night.

“I would like to match the $1.5 million so that students like yourselves can continue in the path in the greatest, purest, truest expressions of themselves,” Oprah said during the event.

Six students were awarded the scholarship and Oprah says that their stories inspired her to do more.
