Once again, #Beyoncé gives us a reason to smile! Celebrating the one-year anniversary of her album #Lemonade, she announced her Formation Scholars program. The scholarship will launch for the 2017-2018 school year. The Formation Scholars awards aim to encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, conscious and confident. Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design and Spelman College are currently the only participating universities and each will award one female incoming, current or graduate student who is studying creative arts, music, literature or African-American Studies. Each college will provide information on how to apply to the program directly to matriculating students. We salute Beyoncé for this new effort, and we encourage all eligible young women to apply! #formation #formationscholars #blackgirlmagic
And don't you ever forget it! #magic #friyay #inspiration
#Repost @becauseofthem ・・・ Congratulations to our #WCW, actress @YaraShahidi on getting accepted into every single college she applied to! So far, senior year for Black-ish star Yara Shahidi has included landing her own spinoff show, receiving a college recommendation letter from Michelle Obama, and now, being accepted into every college she applied to. With several Advanced Placement classes on her high school transcript, the activist and STEM advocate received acceptance letters from four Ivy League schools, two state institutions, and one historically Black college and university. Yara has not yet disclosed which school she plans to attend, but wherever she goes, she plans to double major in sociology and African American studies. Way to go, Yara! We can't wait to see what you'll accomplish next! #blackgirlmagic #becauseofthemwecan
