Following her history-making set at Coachella over the weekend, Beyoncé has donated $25,000 to four historically black colleges and universities for the 2018-2019 school year as part of a new scholarship program. One student each from Xavier University of Louisiana, Wilberforce University, Tuskegee University, and Bethune-Cookman University will receive the money as part of the Homecoming Scholars Award Program. According to The Huffington Post, applicants need to have at least a 3.5 GPA. Each university will select its own finalists and winner, with winners set to be announced sometime this summer. Last year, Beyoncé’s BeyGood initiative gave money to students studying creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies at Berklee College of Music, Parsons School of Design, Howard University, and Spelman College through the Formation Scholars Awards Program.
