Just in case you haven’t yet realized that Beyonce is the queen of (let's face it) everything, she has officially the bar yet again: introducing the Formation Scholars program.
This #Beygood opportunity was announced on Beyonce’s website last month as she celebrated the one-year anniversary of her most recent release: Lemonade, a visual album that takes its listeners on an indelibly Black, undeniably female journey of self-acknowledgment and empowerment. The outpouring of love and support that followed in the wake of Lemonade's release inspired the queen of the BeyHive to support her followers in return--by helping them obtain a college education.

The $25,000 scholarship will be awarded to four fierce female students--one per participating school--for the 2017-2018 academic year. Scholarship recipients will be incoming or current graduate students pursuing degrees in music, creative arts, literature, or African-American studies.
As stated on her website, the scholarship is meant to support unique women who are “unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident.” Applications for the scholarship closed this Monday, so we look forward to meeting the first class of Formation Scholars!
If you're a student at one of the four schools and would like to review the scholarship requirements (hey, it's never too early to prepare for next year!), check out your school's scholarship information below:
