The winners of Beyoncé Formation Scholarship are Sadiya Ramos – a sophomore at Berklee College of Music, Avery Youngblood – a second-year student at Parsons School of Design, Maya Rogers – a graduate student at Howard University, and Bria Paige a junior at Spelman College. The scholarship seeks to encourage and support women who are bold, creative, conscious, confident and unafraid to think outside the box.

 

To apply for the scholarship, students must have maintained a GPA of 3.5 or above and were to submit an essay about how “Lemonade” inspired their academic and professional pursuits. Winners were then selected by a committee from each of the four participating schools, Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design and Spelman College.
