$100K Scholarships Available From Beyonce's BeyGOOD Foundation and Jay-Z's Shawn Carter Foundation

While on their OTR II Tour, Beyoncé and Jay-Z (through BeyGOOD and the Shawn Carter Foundation) revealed a new scholarship program to award outstanding senior high school students assistance with financial need. Each recipient will receive a scholarship award of $100K to put toward their college enrollment, and the award will serve as a dedicated university-based fund for each selected student throughout their enrollment period.
The Boys and Girls Club of America will be the organization to select the recipients. Applicants will be chosen from the following markets: Seattle, San Diego, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Orlando, Miami, Arlington, New Orleans, Houston, Phoenix, and Santa Clara.

BeyGOOD is Beyoncé's charity program, created during the Mrs. Carter World Tour in 2013. In addition to funding scholarships, BeyGOOD also works with other local charities to help fundraise and raise awareness for local causes. Her charity has also promised to help UNICEF provide clean water to the country of Burundi.

The Shawn Carter Foundation was founded as a public charity in 2003 by Shawn “Jay Z” Carter and his mother, Gloria Carter. Since the Foundation’s beginning, over $4 million has been raised to support creativities that empower youth and communities in need. The foundation’s programs offer scholarships, college prep and exposure, international exposure, professional development, and support for community and goodwill initiatives.

The deadline for this scholarship VARIES each year, and the award amount is usually up to $100,000.
