Beyoncé Is Starting A Scholarship For Woke Women In College
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.
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.
