Beyoncé launches 'Formation' scholarship for women

FOR WOMEN: Beyoncé

IN CELEBRATION of the first anniversary of Beyoncé's monumental album Lemonade, the pregnant star has announced the Formation Scholars awards, which will specifically aid female students seeking undergraduate and graduate educations for the 2017-2018 academic year.

According to Bey's website, only women who are seeking undergraduate or graduate degrees in the creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies are eligible. They also must be enrolled at one for the four participating institutions: Howard University, Spelman College, Parsons School of Design and Berklee College of Music.

With the launch of this new scholarship, Beyoncé hopes to encourage young women who are “unafraid to think outside the box, and are bold, creative, conscious and confident.”
