Beyoncé is offering four US college scholarships to mark the one year anniversary of Lemonade.
The Run The World (Girls) hit-maker has launched Formation Scholars, which will award scholarships to female students to ‘encourage and support [those] who are unafraid to think outside the box.’
A statement posted on her website reads, ‘To add to the celebration of the one-year anniversary of Lemonade, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter announces the establishment of Formation Scholar awards for the 2017-2018 academic year.’
The program is meant to ‘encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident.’
The scholarships will be handed to four women ‘pursuing studies in creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies’ in attendance at four selected colleges.
The statement adds: ‘Four scholarships will be awarded, one per college, to female incoming, current or graduate students pursuing studies in creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies. The schools selected for participation are Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design and Spelman College.”
