OK, students, now let’s get in formation.

On the heels of her legendary HBCU-themed Coachella performance, music superstar Beyoncé has announced a scholarship program worth $100,000 for students at historically black colleges and universities.

The scholarship will be for the 2018-2019 academic year and will go to one student at four chosen HBCUs Xavier University, Wilberforce University, Tuskegee University and Bethune-Cookman University. Universities will select which student, who must have a 3.5 GPA, will receive the $25,000 allotted for the scholarship.

Beyoncé’s Coachella show, which saw her become the first black woman to headline the music festival, was a celebration of HBCU culture and took the form of a homecoming celebration.

One year ago, Beyoncéannounced the Formation scholarship, meant to “support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident.”
