Queen Bee does it again!  As if it isn’t enough that she is a mega superstar, musician, actress, mother and wife, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter is also a community activist and philanthropist.  Her most recent album, Lemonade, was released April 23, 2016 and in honor of the one year anniversary Beyoncé announced four college scholarships.  The Formation Scholars Program will be awarded during the 2017-2018 academic year “to encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident,” according to the statement.  One award per college will be given and details and application deadlines are available at each school.  “Who run the world girls!”
