Beyoncé Partners with Google to Give More HBCU Scholarships

After her iconic Coachella 2018 performance, Beyoncé’s BeyGOOD organization donated $100,000 to four HBCU’s. The organization announced on Twitter that Google has followed suit and matched the donation, giving 4 additional HBCU’s $100,000 in scholarships.

“Today, @beyonce, BeyGOOD, and @Google announce an exciting new partnership that will benefit 4 additional HBCUs through the Homecoming Scholars Award Program: ” tweeted a BeyGOOD official.

The “BeyGood’ foundation offered $25,000 scholarships to Xavier University of Louisiana, Wilberforce University, Tuskegee University and Bethune-Cookman University while Google was inspired to offer $25,0000 scholarships to Texas Southern University, Fisk University, Grambling State University and Morehouse College.

A Google spokesperson said that HBCU’s have a “vital” role in “delivering a high quality and culturally responsive education.”

“Partnering with organizations like Google.org in support of HBCUs is our way of elevating cultural touchstones that paint a clear picture of excellence and opportunity through diverse education,” said Ivy McGregor, Director of Philanthropy and Corporate Relations at Parkwood Entertainment which houses BeyGOOD. “We challenge other businesses across the country to join us in this commitment to higher education and investment in the future.”

The winner for each school will receive $25,000 for the 2018/19 school year.
