Beyoncé
Following Beyoncé's epic-ness at this years Coachella  music festival,
Beyoncé has donating $100,000 to four black universities through her foundation BeyGOOD. Yesterday Beyoncé announced the inaugural recipients of her Homecoming Scholars Award Program. Donations will go to students from Tuskegee University, Bethune-Cookman University, Xavier University of Louisiana, and Wilberforce University with one student from each school will receive $25,000 towards their 2018-2019 school year.
 
An official  BeyGOOD statement read,' The Coachella show, with its homage to excellence in education, was a celebration of the homecoming weekend experience, the highest display of college pride, The energy-filled production put the spotlight on art and culture, mixing the ancient and the modern, which resonated masterfully through the marching band, performance art, choir and dance. It was the impetus to mark her second scholarship program.' Whilst each student has to achieve and maintain a 3.5 GPA, areas of study can include literature, creative arts, African-American studies, science, education, business, communications, social sciences, computer science, and engineering. This award will be available to students of any gender.
 
Love what Beyoncé and Drake are doing.
