Beyoncé Announces A Scholarship Program To Celebrate Her One-Year Anniversary of “Lemonade”

It’s been a year since Beyoncé released her often-celebrated and very iconic album Lemonade. 

Instead of focusing on her, Queen B used her power and influence to create the Formation Scholars award. According to her personal website, beyonce.com, four scholarships will be awarded to female incoming, current, or graduate students majoring in creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies. One scholarship will be awarded per school— Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design, and Spelman College.

As evidenced in the above picture, Beyoncé created the scholarship program to “encourage and support women who think outside the box.”

Her career has been a platform for other charitable efforts for all women. Earlier this year, she supported the anti-Trump Women’s March while signing an open letter of support for International Women’s Day.

It’s always a heart-warming feeling when celebrities give back to the next generation. Don’t worry if your school wasn’t selected for the Formation Scholars Award this academic year. I’m sure Queen B will be generous enough to provide for other schools in the future.
