Beyonce Announces Formation Scholarship!
Most artists celebrate their album anniversaries with a tweet or an Instagram post but Beyoncé is doing something truly extraordinary to ring in the one-year anniversary of Lemonade.
The singer is launching Formation Scholars, a scholarship program for young women in college or graduate school. According to a statement posted on Beyonce.com, the scholarship aims to “encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, conscious and confident.”
Starting with the 2017/2018 academic year, four scholarships will be awarded to both current and incoming students studying creative arts, music, literature or African-American Studies. Currently, the only four participating universities are Berkeley College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design and Spellman College. One student will be selected from each school for the four scholarships.
