Beyoncé Is Giving Out Scholarships to College Women—Find Out If You’re Eligible to Apply

As if we didn’t already have thousands of reasons to love Queen B and stay in formation, here’s another one. In celebration of the one-year anniversary of Lemonade (which is *still* relevant, btw), Beyoncé has announced a scholarship program for college women. 

The Formation Scholars program will begin with the 2017-2018 academic year. The purpose of the program is “to encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident.”

But there’s a catch: Only four scholarships will be given out, and you must be an incoming, current or graduate female student studying creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies at Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design or Spelman College to apply.

If you’re lucky enough to be eligible, you can find out more details and deadlines at your college.
