Beyoncé Knowles-Carter is now offering Scholarships to High School students!

Through her new Formation Scholarship Program, my high school students, and yours, and yours, who are bold, creative, conscious, confident and unafraid to think outside the box can apply for her scholarship.

Scholarship was created for "current and incoming female undergraduate and graduate students at Berklee College of Music, including those enrolled at the college’s campuses in Boston and Valencia, Spain, Berklee online and Boston Conservatory at Berklee, Howard University in Washington, DC, Parsons School of Design at The New School in New York City, and Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia."
  • Minimum 3.5 GPA
  • Female applicants only
  • Must be accepted into one of the four schools listed above

Now, what if the GPA is lower than 3.5? Or what if your student is male too?


Shawn Carter, aka Jay-Z, has a scholarship for students who need financial help but may not have a high GPA.

The Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund (SCSF) was founded on the belief that any motivated individual in need should have the opportunity to further his or her education. By removing some of the financial burdens associated with going to, surviving in, and graduating from college, the SCSF plays a vital role in increasing college access and success for many motivated yet underserved youth and young adults.


  • US citizen or Permanent Resident
  • 25 years old or younger
  • Minimum 2.0 GPA (this is amazing!!!!)
