Beyoncé is celebrating the one-year anniversary of her album Lemonade by announcing her “Formation Scholars” program. The scholarship will launch for the 2017-2018 school year.
According to a statement posted Beyonce’s website, the “Formation Scholars” awards will “encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, conscious and confident.”
The Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design and Spelman college are the only participating universities so far. Each school will award one incoming, current or graduate female student who is studying creative arts, music, literature or African-American Studies. Each college will provide information on how to apply to the program directly to students.
