Beyonce announced she’ll be donating $100,000 to four HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) as part of a scholarship program. Xavier University of Louisiana, Wilberforce University, Tuskegee University and Bethune-Cookman University will receive $25,000 each. One student at each of these schools will earn the scholarship!
In order to be eligible for the scholarship the student must have a 3.5 GPA or higher.
“We salute the rich legacy of Historically Black Colleges and Universities,” said Ivy McGregor, the director of philanthropy and corporate relations at Parkwood Entertainment — which houses Beyonce’s BeyGOOD initiative — said via a statement. “We honor all institutions of higher learning for maintaining culture and creating environments for optimal learning which expands dreams and the seas of possibilities for students.”
