Can you imagine going to college on Beyoncé’s dime?
Well, now you can. This dream will become a reality for 4 lucky and deserving college women.
In honor of the one-year anniversary of Lemonade, Beyoncé created the Formation Scholars program. As if we needed another reason to love Bey!
Vulture reports that the scholarship is open to incoming, current, or graduate students who are “unafraid to think outside of the box and are bold, creative, conscious, and confident.”
A world with more Beyoncé-minded people is a world we like living in.
Additionally, the student must enroll in a degree program in the creative arts, music, literature, or African-American studies. Schools included in the program include Spelman College, Howard University, Berklee College of Music. and Parsons School of Design
Also, we love that Beyoncé is endorsing these fields of study at a time when STEM and business degrees are unfairly projected as the most valuable degrees in our society. So we are definitely all about this.
If you are interested in applying for the scholarship, you can find more information on the schools’ respective websites.
It goes without saying that having an endorsement by Beyoncé is definitely a good way to kick-off your professional career!
