Slayin’ education costs.

The undisputed R&B Queen is blessing students with a generous donation (yet again).

Beyoncé, along with Jay-Z, has announced another scholarship program, which will see over $1 million USD awarded to 11 students $100,000 each.

The selection will be made across eleven different stops on the Carter’s On The Run II Tour, covering Orlando, Miami, Arlington, New Orleans, Houston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Clara and Seattle.

According to a press release from Bey’s company, qualifying students must demonstrate “academic excellence”, and “financial needs that would make it hard for them to enter a college or university”.

This marks the third scholarship program Bey has launched to help underprivileged undergraduates. The first granted $25,000 to four students from historically black colleges and universities (HBCU’s), with the second extending the award to four more students.

Back in 2017, the singer’s Formation Scholars Award provided young women with the financial support to pursue their studies.
