The Furious 7 star was inspired to do good earlier this year (15) after seeing American radio personality Tom Joyner receive the Humanitarian Award at the BET Awards in recognition of his foundation, which supports historically black colleges and universities through scholarships and endowments.

After seeing the impacts of Joyner's efforts, Gibson decided to pay it forward with 21-year-old Lorenzo Murphy from Compton, California, not too far from the singer's hometown of Watts.

Murphy is known for his inspirational messages as "Zo the Motivator" on, and Gibson picked the young man for the special scholarship since he had already given so much back to his online followers.

Gibson took to Instagram to post a photo of Joyner to cite his influence, writing, "Why did I decide to put this young kid from Compton through college?? Because I #dream with my eyes OPEN and this year I watch this true legend get UP on stage and give the most moving speech about WHY he has raised and donated over 65 million dollars and put close to 30,000 african american kids into college and I decided at that MOMENT I needed to DO something.......

"It's all about the #Start and this young kid is #StraightOuttaCompton and he started his first day in college yesterday - Tom Joyner sir you ARE a legend and you HAVE impacted our world - 30,000 young sharp minds have an opportunity to be SIGNIFICANT in their lives because of you..... BET honored that day but you should be blessed and honored ALL YEAR for what YOU do on behalf of others.

"Shout to @zothemotivator #MoreHouseCollege Walking the same grounds at Dr Martin Luther King Jr - you did the WORK ANS EARNED your slot..... Make up proud Zo please make us proud!!"

Gibson shared another photo of him with Murphy and Run DMC star Rev Run before the student started classes in Atlanta, Georgia, and Murphy also reposted the snap sharing his gratitude for the singer.

Murphy wrote, "As of today I begin my journey as a Man of Morehouse. I am beyond grateful and thankful to be apart of such great legacy. None of this would be possible without God, @tyrese, the support from my family and of course, my relentless hard work. Annually, Morehouse is around 45k-50k and as you can imagine, that is a lot of money.

"I thank God for placing @tyrese in my life. It is because of him believing in me and investing in my future, that I am able to receive my education. I am amongst the worlds greatest leaders and I want to thank @tyrese for giving me the opportunity to be pursue my academic and career endeavors at Morehouse College."
