On the heels of her epic Coachella performance, Beyoncé has announced her new initiative that will offer students enrolled in HBCUs $100,000 in scholarships through her BeyGood foundation.
The official statement reads:
The show, with its homage to excellence in education, was a celebration of the homecoming weekend experience, the highest display of college pride.
The energy-filled production put the spotlight on art and culture, mixing the ancient and the modern, which resonated masterfully through the marching band, performance art, choir and dance.
It was the impetus to mark her second scholarship program.
We salute the rich legacy of Historically Black Colleges and Universities,
We honor all institutions of higher learning for maintaining culture and creating environments for optimal learning which expands dreams and the seas of possibilities for students.
One winner from Xavier, Wilberforce, Tuskegee and Bethune-Cookman will receive the newly established Homecoming Scholars Award Program in the amount of $25,000 for the 2018-2019 academic year.
