Beyonce Launches Scholarship Fund for HBCU Students

Students attending four historically Black colleges and universities during the 2018-19 school year will receive scholarships from singer Beyonce’s Homecoming Scholars Award program.

The world-famous performer will provide $25,000 in scholarship money to a student at Xavier University of Louisiana, Wilberforce University in Ohio, Tuskegee University in Alabama and Bethune-Cookman University in Florida.

The announcement comes the heels of the singer’s lauded performance Saturday at the Coachella music festival in Southern California, where she was supported on stage by more than 150 performers.

Her two-hour show — which marked the first time a Black woman had headlined the annual festival since its 1999 start — was billed as an homage to education and Black American culture.
