Beyonce Announces HBCU Scholarship Program


Saturday night Beyonce honored Historically Black Colleges and Universities with her performance at Coachella.

Today Beyonce announced her HBCU scholarship program...

Following her performance Beyonce announced her BeyGood initiative would be awarding one student from Bethune Cookman, Wilberforce, Tuskegee and Xavier Universities with a $25k scholarship for any area of study for the 2018 - 2019 school year.

This is Beyonce's second year awarding scholarships.

APPLAUSE to Education & giving back....we need more of this in out communities...Do that shit Bet!!!

As I said on the Beyonce Coachella post...give this woman credit! Kudos to Beyonce! As an HBCU alum I applaud her performance, these scholarships and her bringing much needed attention to our HBCUs. HBCUs need all the help they can get in this Trump era. I'm sure the scholarships are well needed and will be well deserved by the recipients. Hopefully others will follow suit and will give back to HBCUs as well.

I couldn't care less about the struggling HBCUs so NO, I ain't giving her credit.

I'm no fan at all but thank goodness she is promoting education. I'm so sick of these strippers and escorts getting all of the shine. It's like it's bad bad thing now to be educated. I had a this guy tell me a few months ago that an educated black woman is worse than a woman on welfare and section 8.

All of a sudden she wants to be black. I just don't like her. Well at least she's not trying to speak out about worldly views cause that would be hard to watch and understand. She's not that black.

$100,000, she has many millions and that's all she gave how lowly

Anonymous said...

Kudos to Beyonce!!! There is ALWAYS room for growth and if it took her 30+ years to accept her blackness, that's better than getting it at 50. We all know that she could cure AIDS and cancer and it wouldn't be good enough for some people.

@12:18. Of course. It's nothing but self promotion.
Just like she wanted to be Latina when that Spanish album came out.
Phonier than a $3 bill.

@12:21
She has millions? According to the posters on RWS, she and Jigga are broke and are millions in debt.

95% of celebrities that give do it for show. I personally don't give a damn why they give, just continue to give and help others.

Good job Bey!


I just hope this isn't one of those scholarships where the applicant has to write an essay detailing how Beyonce has inspired them.

How can someone who CONTINUOUSLY spreads her legs open for the world to see, twerks and flashes her booty, has songs with such low frequency vulgar lyrics and brags about her riches be taken seriously. She's a total embarrassment to any thinking black person. Strange the likes of Oprah, Michelle Obama endorse this heffa. Baffled!

Anonymous said...

Because they judge her as Beyonce the person not Beyonce the entertainer. Let's not forget she doesn't write her own lyrics. *Rolls eyes*

Anonymous said...

Who truly cares? I don't care what she does, negative or positive. She, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj have been the worst, most annoying black female pop stars in history and all three of them need to fade into obscurity and go away. None of them have added anything of value to music as an artform. NOTHING but glitz, glamour, materialism, and catty pageant behavior.

I know people who attended these universities (Bethune Cookman, Wilberforce, Tuskegee and Xavier) and they *need* the money. They are very expensive HBCUs. Xavier cranks out Black doctors like pancakes and Tuskegee cranks out Black engineers.

Thank you Beyonce for Beygood, giving 7 million dollars to Houston's homeless and you and Kelly building housing apartments for no/low income families and for you'll building a rec center to keep kids out of trouble.

Oh and thank you for starting a cosmetology program so that low income families can get their cosmetology license and giving back to HBCU's.

Bust how DailyMail diss the crap out of Bey!!
Too funny, see this is how the real powers that be get at you, basically telling her to lose weight before she goes on tour with JZ

Dailymail politely called her a WHALE with her own words, I was laughing so hard!!!!!

Personally I don't care about B's weight at all fat skinny who cares but Main Stream Media and Hollyweird CARES all day every day about weight!

I don't think B has ever been this fat on stage not even when she did Etta James, so maybe that is why she is doing this whole "Black thing" cause she can't lose the weight? Who Knows or may J won't let her because of the ghetto tour they doing soon, again who knows

Also her voice is so so so deep now if you close your eyes you would think RuPaul was signing!!

She looked bigger at the festival than in the OTR@ promo pics in Jamaica

Mathew, the PHD doctor got Beyonce doing this one. Her contradiction is petty like her act on feminism, coachella rants and pro-black substance. I see why struggle people keep it real; you don't know someone's agenda, for they will just do it instead of announcing it. You moral standard comes from the heart, not addressing it to be followed. Here comes the harnessing PR.....
Dear PR,
I don't know what Sade does, Lauryn Hill will do, what Janet Jackson has done but I will still listening to the content of their art. Thank you.

Beyonce's hating, dyck rider on here, needs to suck on her balls. Lol you've been saying the same thing for over ten years and yet she had the best Beychella performance in history in 2018.

What you need to do is go on and FB and DM and join all the pissed off white people. Lol. I'm glad she's "chunky" she could've paid for a tummy tuck like the fake, wanna be black Katrashians and the white sluts in Hollyweird did.

^^she's a fit whale then, killing these "skinny" bitches left and right with her 2 hour non stop performances. Her being overweight makes it sadder that skinny performers can't even keep up. She needs to teach a class on stamina and endurance for these skinny hoes that can't keep up and stay relevant.

Like someone on Lsa when she doesn’t have all that production on stage she isn’t remarkable at all, Grammy, dil, Grammy precious lord, something she did at the brits, xo unlike real greats who can electrify on their own. The team behind her was great, she was propped up as usual

Like a LOT of people around the world and I said, "those people performed their roles in bits and pieces at different times of their performance(s)" (10-30 minute intervals) so of course the band, dancers, steppers, DC, Solange, Jayz etc... BETTER be hyped and on point. Holla at me when you SOLELY have to dance along with ALL of them in heels for two hours straight.

When I see another black female artist in 2018 that puts on a performance even remotely to the caliber of this performance, I'll throw in the white flag and say, "anyone can do it". As of now nobody has, so what are they waiting on?

What you said was pure gold.

And I'm tired of people raving about Beyonce's work ethic. Do you know how many fucking black women work as hard as her in that industry? Just because they aren't workaholics desperate to be EVERYWHERE and oversaturated doesn't mean that they are not hard-working. You fans fucking suck! How Dare you? So Tyra Banks, Oprah, Queen Latifah, Taraji Henson, Tinashe, Janelle Monae, and Viola Davis aren't hard-working? Just because they aren't greedy, oversaturated divas don't make them lazy. How fucking Dare you fans take away from other black women just to uplift one?!

Fuck the Beyhive, fuck Beyonce, and fuck everyone falling for this woman's hype!

Don’t back peddle she is always the hardest, the greatest it’s reeks of insecurity in her and her fans and for it’s not a universally shared opinion, if success is not being able to stay home with your newborns, married to a cheater, promoting garbage and a European standard of beauty well....for many they would not want this, at all.

I watched the performance in my opinion. The band was cool but for me they took away from her performance. The band made the stage look cluttered. A true performer doesnt need 100 people on the stage. All an artist need is the mic,few back ground singers and a few dancers
She should have saved the band for the OTR2 tour. Also she was barely keeping up with everyone Solo and Kelly made bey look stiff as hell i guess she needs to lay of the pop'eyes chicken lol

I also noticed bey had that Milli Vanilli thing working with vocal range. We all know bey vocal range is mediocre lol

My opinion the show was a glorified fashion/ homecoming / triptease show lol I guess the illuminati is funding that scholarship program since bey flashed the illuminati six on the eye hand sign

These scholarships are nothing but overblown publicity for Beyonces projects said...

These scholarships are nothing but overblown publicity for Beyonces projects last years was all about her project "Lemonade"

***Applicants for the scholarships sent in an essay about "Lemonade," and how the album "inspired their educational goals," according to Beyoncé's site. Rogers said her essay focused on the themes of forgiveness and love, things that are important to her, "in just how to live your life."***
