Beyoncé Is Starting A Scholarship For Woke Women In College

“Always stay gracious, best revenge is your paper.”

Beyoncé is celebrating the one-year anniversary of her earth-shattering visual album “Lemonade” by helping young women pay for college.

The singer announced her new program Formation Scholars on Monday, named after her powerfully pro-black single “Formation.” The program, as a part of her #BeyGood initiative, will award young ladies “who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident” for the 2017-2018 school year.

 

One student from each participating school ― Berklee College of Music, Parsons School of Design and historically black college or universities Howard University and Spelman College ― will be selected. Formation Scholars will give four scholarships to an incoming, current or graduate student studying creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies.

Beyoncé’s “Lemonade,” which recently earned the artist a Peabody award, has made an impact on college campuses before. In September, University of Texas at San Antonio offered a class on the album. Proffessors at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga dedicated a full week of workshops to unpacking the album and black womanhood.

 

Hands down, “Lemonade” is the gift that keeps on giving.
