Beyoncé’s Lemonade was released a year ago this week and in honor, the singer has formed the “Formation Scholars” awards.
The scholarships were created “to encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident.” The awards specifically are geared to students studying either “creative arts,” music, literature or African-American studies.
The participating colleges are: the Berklee College of Music, Howard University in Washington, D.C.; Parsons School of Design in New York City; and Atlanta’s Spelman College. The 4 recipients will be either an incoming or current undergraduate or graduate student.
Although it’s not know what amount of scholarships will be available at the schools, Berklee did confirm that its scholarship is for $25,000 per school per year.
