Beyoncé Giselle Knowles Is Sending Women to College Through Formation Scholars Program
Okay scholars, now let’s get in formation. Ethereal queen of feminist pop music Beyoncé Giselle Knowles is caping for her fellow women with a scholarship program that would send four bright young minds to college.
In celebration of Lemonade’s 1-year anniversary (Side question: Did we ever confirm that Becky has good hair? How many of you all went to Red Lobster after that song came out? Who is still sorry not sorry?), the singer announced the creation of Formation Scholars, which supports women who are “unafraid to think outside of the box and are bold, creative, conscious, and confident.” To be eligible, you’ll have to be enrolled in a program for creative arts, music, literature, or African-American studies.
Per Vulture, participating schools include HBCUs Spelman College and Howard University, Parsons School of Design and Berklee College of Music. Right now, the program is pretty small but perhaps it will grow larger in time. I’m just glad to see someone with such a huge platform investing in women’s education seeing as countless others around the world refuse to do so.
