Beyonce Launches Formation Scholars

Categories // LA Focus, On the Money Friday, 05 May 2017

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.
