Beyonce Partners With Google to Award Four More $25K Scholarships to HBCU Students
Beyoncé has partnered with Google to announce that four more scholarships will be awarded to HBCU students through her BeyGood organization.
It was previously announced that Bey— who incorporated a black college homecoming theme for her historic Coachella performance— was donating four $25,000 scholarships to students who attend Louisiana's Xavier University, Ohio's Wilberforce University, Alabama's Tuskegee University, and Florida's Bethune-Cookman University.
Now, the Homecoming Scholarship has been extended to four more historically black schools. Students who attend Texas Southern University, Fisk University, Grambling State University, and Morehouse College are now eligible to apply for the $25,000 scholarship, which four students will receive.
“Google understands the vital role historically black colleges and universities play in delivering a high quality and culturally responsive education,” said Maab Ibrahim, a program manager at Google.org, in a statement, according to Complex.
The scholarships were created to show appreciation to HBCUs.
“We salute the rich legacy of Historically Black Colleges and Universities,” said Ivy McGregor, Director of Philanthropy and Corporate Relations at Parkwood Entertainment, which houses BeyGOOD. “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.”
