BEYONCÉ’S “FORMATION SCHOLARS”
In times like these, we really want to stop and think, who really runs the world?
This morning, in celebration of the one-year anniversary of her groundbreaking album Lemonade, Beyoncé posted a statement on her website, announcing a new initiative to help other young women fulfill their ambitions.
Four “incoming, current or graduate” students will be selected as the Formation Scholars and be offered the chance to pursue a major in the creative arts, music, literature, or African-American studies starting the 2017-2018 academic year.
The concerned schools are Berklee College of Music in Boston; Howard University in Washington, D.C.; Parsons School of Design in New York; and Spelman College in Atlanta.
