Samantha Watts is going to Ithaca College but after her father battled cancer, money for tuition is tight. The Today Show and Will Ferrell wanted to help.

Watts is studying speech pathology and education studies "I love my school and everything I do there," said Watts. "But my dad just recovered from cancer. A lot of our money had to go towards that last year. We're kind of dependent on scholarships and loans. So a scholarship would be life changing right now."

Life changed for Watts when she discovered she wasn't a finalist, she was actually the recipient of the $100,000 scholarship that Will Ferrell presented. "I'm flabbergasted. This is amazing."
