Beyoncé Announces Scholarship Program for HBCU's, Following Coachella Performance

Beyonce has announced that she is donating $100,000 to four historically black universities in America, after establishing a scholarship program a year ago.

Beyonce was the first African American woman to headline Coachella, a point she made herself during the performance. Bey also added that she hoped the performance would encourage enrollment at HBCUs. All applicants must maintain a 3.5 GPA or above. It was no ordinary show when she stepped on stage wearing a dazzling band leader number before what has been one of her best performances ever. Student courses of study to be considered for the scholarship will include "literature, creative arts, African-American studies, science, education, business, communications, social sciences, computer science and engineering", according to the site.

All finalists and winners will be selected by the universities and winners will be announced some time this summer.

Before some 100,000 people in the southern California desert, she headlined the second night of this year's edition of Coachella, ending a year-long hiatus from live music as she welcomed the new additions to her family. Visit beyonce.com for more info. She plans to give $25,000 each to Tuskegee University, Bethune-Cookman University, Xavier University of Louisiana and Wilberforce University.

One victor from each school will be chosen, and he or she will receive their share of US$25,000 for study in the 2018-2019 academic year. The effort was meant as a way of supporting young, bold, and confident women who use creativity to face challenges and who won't let fear get in the way. Last year, she launched The Formation Scholars Awards Program in celebration of Lemonade's one-year anniversary.
