FOUR BLACK women have been named the winners of Beyoncé’s Formation Scholarship.

The BeyGood foundation announced the winners on Thursday, with two winners coming from historically black colleges – Maya Rogers, a graduate student studying music therapy at Howard University and Bria Paige, a junior studying English at Spelman College.

The other two winners come from art schools: Sadiya Ramos, a sophomore studying dance at Berklee College of Music and Avery Youngblood, a second-year student studying graphic design at Parsons School of Design, respectively.

To receive the women-only scholarship, these students had to have a 3.5 grade point average and write an essay about how Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” inspired them in their educational endeavors. The scholarship, announced in April, was a part of the one-year celebration of the visual album.

The four ladies will now receive $25,000 toward their schooling as they pursue higher education.
