0 comments

Beyoncé is a tireless advocate for the culture. The Grammy Award winning musician cemented her iconic status yet again by pledging $100,000 worth of scholarships for students going to 8 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) through her BeyGOOD Initiative.

Google hopped on the project, and promised to match Beyoncé's scholarship funds dollar for dollar. Now, the lucky scholars have been announced, and we're all thrilled!

 
The recipients of the scholarship are:

Alana J. Barfield, Xavier University

Caleb Washington, Tuskegee University

Jordan Davis, Texas Southern University

Cletus Emokpae, Grambling State University

Erin Evans, Wilberforce University

Demetrius Weaver, Bethune-Cookman University

Dartisha Mosley, Fisk University

Kameron Willis, Morehouse College

Some of the scholars couldn't help but express their joy on Twitter.

 

 

 
They're going to great things, we're sure! Congratulations to them
