Who run the world? These girls!
Four black women each received $25,000 college scholarships thanks to Beyoncé's new Formation Scholars program.
In order to qualify for the award, launched this April in honor of Lemonade's one-year anniversary, each applicant had to maintain 3.5 grade point average and pen an essay on how Beyoncé's album inspired their educational goals.
The program was offered to women at four colleges — including two HBCUs — who are "bold, creative, conscious, confident, and unafraid to think outside the box." (Take it from us: After reading descriptions about all four winners, they MORE than fit the bill.)
