Queen Bey has announced her plans to offer four United States Students College scholarships in celebration of one year of the release of her sixth studio album, Lemonade.
The scholarships are designed to “encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box”, she said.
Beyonce is focusing on giving college places in the creative arts, music, literature and African-American studies available at four universities for entry next year.
The students will be called Formation Scholars, after one of the tracks on the 2016 album.
According to the music goddess:
“To add to the celebration of the one-year anniversary of Lemonade, Beyonce Knowles-Carter announces the establishment of Formation Scholar awards for the 2017-2018 academic year, to encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident.
“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.”
