It has been a year since Lemonade was released—can you believe it? The visual album absolutely changed the game and our lives: no hyperbole necessary. Beyoncé will be welcoming two little ones any day now, thus that’s all the celebration she really needs, but she decided to put a cherry on a top with a major move that gives back—aptly titled The Formation Scholars.
She announced the news on her website today. The scholarships will be awarded to four young women from four universities—Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design, and Spelman College. And through it, the students’ tuition for the 2017 – 2018 academic year will be funded, though we’re not certain if it will be in full or partially paid for. The Formation Scholars goal? “To encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident,” states Beyoncé.

Applications and deadlines have still yet to be determined by each college, but brava to Bey for this amazing effort.
Thoughts on the news?
