Beyoncé Announces Formation Scholarships for Black Women Pursuing Higher Education

To add to the celebration of the one-year anniversary of LEMONADE, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter announces the establishment of Formation Scholars awards for the 2017-2018 academic year, to encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident.
Four scholarships will be awarded, one per college, to female incoming, current or graduate students pursuing studies in creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies.
The schools selected for participation are Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design and Spelman College. All details and application deadlines are available directly from the colleges.

Beyoncé is settling in to have her twin babies soon, but she hasn’t abandoned the work she began a year ago with the release of Formation. The singer announced on Monday the creation of four scholarships for Black women in college called the Formation Scholars Award.


The awards will be given to a single Black woman student at Berklee College of Music, Parsons School of Design, Howard University and Spelman College. Incoming, current and graduate students studying creative arts, music, literature or African American students are eligible to receive the funding. Interested students should contact their universities for more information.
