"Last time you were here, Walmart wanted to give you $25,000," DeGeneres, 59, revealed. "We've never done anything this big before, we've reached out to the people at Walmart, and they want to give each one of you a four-year scholarship."

What an amazing gift!

The students, who were overjoyed by the generosity, had opened up previously on the show about what college means to them.
