After her history making and showstopping performance and her tribute to HBCU‘s, Beyonce is giving back and donating $100,000 to four HBCU’s!

The superstar singer announced Monday the Homecoming Scholars Award Program for the 2018-2019 academic year through her BeyGOOD initiative, where she will give $25,000 each to Tuskegee University, Bethune-Cookman University, Xavier University of Louisiana and Wilberforce University, with one student from each school receiving the scholarship.

Ivy McGregor, Director of Philanthropy and Corporate Relations at Parkwood Entertainment, which houses BeyGOOD, stated:

“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.”

This is Yonce’s second program following the Formation Scholars Award, which was formed on April 25, 2017 to celebrate the one year anniversary of her sixth studio album LEMONADE.
