Music superstar Beyoncé’s BeyGOOD Foundation is accepting applications for its Homecoming Scholars Award — a merit-based scholarship open to incoming and returning undergraduate and graduate students at Florida’s Bethune-Cookman University — through May 31.

The foundation, launched four years ago, is a philanthropic initiative of the entertainer that also assists the homeless, sick children and the unemployed.

To be eligible for the $25,000 scholarship, students must have at least a 3.5 grade point average, present a one-page biography and a color head shot photograph, and proof of work in their field of study — such as essays, past assignments or portfolios. Incoming students can provide school assignments that demonstrate interest in the field they intend to study.

Each student must submit a 1,000-word essay about an African or African-American leader in their field of study who has inspired them. The essay must include applicants plan to contribute to history through their own life’s work.

A university committee will select the final five applicants by June 30, and the BeyGOOD Foundation will announce the winning scholars in late July.
