Get in formation


I am glad this song transcended from just being a meme and a sisterhood power upper to actually effecting positive change even though it took a year since the release, it is fine, we would take it.  The scholarship which is set to launch for the 2017-2018 school year is under the reins of four participating universities, which are- Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design and Spelman College. 

To add to the celebration of the one-year anniversary of LEMONADE,
Beyoncé Knowles-Carter announces the establishment of Formation Scholars awards for the
2017-2018 academic year, to encourage and support young women who
are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident.
Four scholarships will be awarded, one per college, to female incoming, current or graduate students
pursuing studies in creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies.
The schools selected for participation are Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design
and Spelman College. All details and application deadlines are available directly from the colleges.

So Beyonce did not only feature Nigerian Author, Chimamanda Adichie's "We should all be feminist" to add verses to her songs, she clearly has a strong passion for all things women empowerment and prior to this scholarship program, she openly supported the anti-Trump Women's March and signed an open letter in support of International Women's Day. The album so far has bagged numerous awards- two Grammys, eight VMAs, five BET Awards, four Soul Train Music Awards and four Emmy nominations; so it is a good thing she did not mark its anniversary with a tour or a rare photo of Blue Ivy or JayZ.

Taking a step further after challenging them with a whole album of inspiring words, she has put words to motion by giving them a chance to take their future by the horns.
