Four more students have a chance to enroll in Beyonce's scholar program.
After Beyonce's first Coachella performance she announced that her BeyGOOD charity will be donating $25,000 grants to four Historically Black Colleges and Universities. One lucky student from each school will get granted the money for the 2018-2019 school year. After her second Coachella performance, it's now been revealed that four more students will get such a prestigious opportunity thanks to Google.
Google.org has announced that they will match Bey's contributions by offering the grant to one student from Texas Southern University, Fisk University, Grambling State University, and Morehouse College. The four students must be studying literature, creative arts, African-American studies, science, education, business, communications, social sciences, computer science or engineering and hold a 3.5GPA or highter.
"Google understands the vital role historically black colleges and universities play in delivering a high quality and culturally responsive education," Maab Ibrahim, a Google.org program manager said in a statement. "In the last several years, Google has launched innovative programs to close the distance between Silicon Valley and HBCUs; we are proud to continue that commitment by matching Beyoncé's generous donation."
This is the second year of scholar programs created by Beyonce's BeyGOOD.
