Beyonce Launches Formation Scholars

Adding to the celebration of the one year anniversary of the release of her Lemonade, Beyonce has announced the establishment of Formation Scholars, a program targeting young women in college or graduate school. According to a statement posted on her website, the scholarship’s mission is to encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are “bold, conscious and confident."

Beginning with the 2017/2018 academic year, four scholarships will be handed out to students studying creative arts, music, literature or African-American Studies at four participating universities: Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design and Spelman College. One student will be selected from each school for the four scholarships. Those seeking more information about details and application deadlines can contact the colleges directly.

Dollars and Sense

One of the most unexpected things in life occurs when you get a call telling you a loved one is gravely ill. I know because last month I got such a call. The call simply said, ‘Get home quickly, your mother is not going to make it. My whole world stood still. It had been less than six weeks since I had been with my mother, and although she had been sick, she was recovering nicely.

My mother passed on May 7, one day before Mother’s Day and I want to share with all of you how difficult this time is and how it is so very hard to focus on the business at hand and grieve also. One thing that is just as sure is that this is no time to do financial planning. It is too late. The cost to memorialize my mother cost the family more than $10,000. In fact, the average funeral in the U.S. surpassed $7,000 in 2012 and now inches closer to $10,000, though the National Funeral Directors Association reports that funerals can cost up to $27,000, with the least expensive burials costing right around $2,000 to $3,000.
