Beyoncé funds scholarships to honor a year of ‘LEMONADE’
Beyoncé’s visual album LEMONADE has officially been a part of the public consciousness for a year. To celebrate the project and all of its critical acclaim, Beyoncé didn’t drop a new album or even a song. Instead, she’s changing the lives of four women seeking a higher education, according to CNN.
Through four one-time $25,000 scholarships, “young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident” will be rewarded for their hard work.
Any women studying studying creative arts, music, literature or African American studies in the 2017-2018 school-year at participating schools are eligible.
All they have to do is submit their portfolio of their work and answer the prompt: “How has LEMONADE inspired your educational goals?”
Spelman College, Howard University, Berklee College of Music and Parsons School of Design are the four participating institutions and are thrilled to be a part of the moment.
