How would you react if you were handed a full scholarship to the school of your dreams?
Well, for some very lucky—and talented—upstarts on Celebrity Undercover Boss, this became their reality when they received full college scholarships within their artistic fields on two special editions of the show, thanks to singer Darius Rucker and chef Marcus Samuelsson.
Rucker, a country-music superstar who formerly fronted the uber-successful '90s alt-rock band Hootie & The Blowfish, rewarded two up-and-coming musicians full tuition to Hollywood's prestigious Musicians Institute.
Not only did Rucker foot the bill for their education, but also paid for private music lessons, textbooks, and housing for them in the Golden State.

Then, on the season finale of Undercover Boss, world-renowned chef Samuelsson gifted a full scholarship to The Culinary Institute of New York at Monroe College to one very grateful woman he had the privilege of getting to know during his journey.
Included in the four-year scholarship was room and board, $15K in moving expenses, and a promised job upon graduation.
