Berklee selected as recipient of Beyoncé’s ‘Formation Scholars’ program


Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

This week Beyoncé’s landmark album Lemonade celebrates its one-year anniversary, and to mark the occasion, the human force of nature has established a college scholarship for young women. The news was posted on Beyoncé’s website in the #Beygood section, and is designed “to encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident.”

Berklee College of Music has been selected to receive one of the four scholarships for the 2017-2018 academic year. The three other schools involved are Howard University, Parsons School of Design, and Spelman College.

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 message reads. “All details and application deadlines are available directly from the colleges.”
