Bad girl Rihanna isn't so bad after all, in fact, she's really nice. She announced the launch of her Global Scholarship through her Clara Lionel Foundation last night.

Unfortunately for us Malaysians, the scholarship only funds your studies in the United States if you're a citizen or a native of Brazil, Barbados, Cuba, Haiti, Grenada, Guyana or Jamaica. According to the website, selected students will receive an award "ranging from $5,000 to $50,000 USD" (approx. RM20,285 to RM202,845) with a renewal for up to three additional years or until "a bachelor's degree is earned, whichever occurs first."

Consider this our official plea for Riri to extend her generosity to Malaysia one day.
