In honor of the one-year anniversary of Lemonade, Beyoncé has announced a new scholarship program for young women.
The “Formation Scholars” program is meant to “encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious, and confident,” according to Beyonce.com.
For its inaugural year — the 2017-2018 school year — the scholars will be selected from four different schools: Berklee College of Music in Boston, Howard University in Washington D.C., Parsons School of Design in New York, and Spelman College in Atlanta.
“Four scholarships will be awarded, one per college, to female incoming, current, or graduate students pursuing studies in the creative arts, music, literature, or African-American studies,” reads the statement.
We love how Bey is showing some love to the HBCUs, along with fashion and music schools like Parsons and Berklee. No details on how much each student would be awarded, but if we could, we’d apply.
