    In 2012, Rihanna launched The Clara Lionel Foundation, a nonprofit that "works to improve the quality of life for communities globally in the areas of health, education, arts and culture." Yesterday, "Clara Lionel Foundation established a scholarship program to assist citizens or natives of Brazil, Barbados, Cuba, Haiti, Grenada, Guyana, or Jamaica who plan to continue their education in college in the United States." This year's scholarship deadline is June 10th.

    Rihanna said in a statement about the program, "To be able to give the gift of an education is actually an honor. Higher education will help provide perspective, opportunities and learning to a group of kids who really deserve it. I am thrilled to be able to do this."

    Rihanna is currently on her way to finishing up the North American leg of her Anti World Tour. She next plays May 13th in Dallas, Texas. She has four U.S. shows after that, the last being May 18th in Atlanta, Georgia. After that, Rihanna will head to Europe for two months of shows starting June 17th in Amsterdam, Netherlands. She will wrap up the European leg of the tour on August 21st in Chelmsford, England. She is also scheduled to play a show November 27th in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

    The Barbadian singer released her newest album, Anti, at the end of January. The first single of the record, "Work" [ft. Drake], reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed there for a total of nine weeks.
