Beyonce has just announced the "Formation Scholars" scholarship program. A statement on her website reads:
"To add to the celebration of the one-year anniversary of Lemonade, Beyonce Knowles-Carter announce the establishment of Formation Scholars awards for the 2017-2018 academic year, to encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident.
Four scholarships will be awarded, one per college, to female incoming, current or graduate students pursuing studies in creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies. The schools selected for for participation are Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design and Spelman College. All details a applications deadline are available directly from the colleges."
Beyonce is currently preparing for the birth of twins, though no one is really sure when exactly that will be - even though we are sure the Beyhive is doing their best to figure it out. Recently, Beyonce released a reworked video for "Die With You" in celebration of her and Jay Z's anniversary.
Beyonce was originally set to play last weekend's - and the weekend before's - Coachella, but due to her pregnancy was forced to pull out due to her pregnancy. But in good news for all Coachella goers, Bey is set to play Coachella next year. It seems like no matter what is going on, there is always something to look forward to in Beyonce's world.
