In honor of the one-year anniversary of her groundbreaking visual album “Lemonade,” Beyoncé has announced the establishment of Formation Scholars, a scholarship program for young women studying creative arts, music, literature, or African-American studies.
Four scholarships will be awarded for the 2017-2018 academic year to one student at each participating college: Berklee College of Music, Parsons School of Design, Spelman College and D.C.’s own Howard University.
According to a statement, the program’s aim is to “encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident.”
