Beyonce has a new scholarship called FORMATION SCHOLARS AWARD that was posted on her website this morning. Berklee College is one of the four colleges that has received it. The other three colleges are SPELLMAN COLLEGE, HOWARD UNIVERSITY AND PARSONS SCHOOL OF DESIGN. The scholarship is to female students studying creative arts, music, literature, or African-American studies.
In March, Berklee hosted a sold-out concert by Beyoncé’s original all-female band, which included Berklee alums Nikki Glaspie on drums and Rie Tsuji on keyboard.
