Beyoncé keeps on giving. Last week, she announced a $100,000 Homecoming Scholars Awards Program, aimed to help four students at HBCUs with $25,000 apiece. Now, Google.org matched her donation to include four more students from different HBCUs.
Texas Southern University, Fisk University, Grambling State University, and Morehouse College are the newest schools to join the list. The previous four were Xavier, Wilberforce, Tuskegee, and Bethune-Cookman. One student from each school will be recognized with $25,000 towards their 2018-2019 school year.
“Google understands the vital role historically black colleges and universities play in delivering a high quality and culturally responsive education,” said Maab Ibrahim, a program manager at Google.org. “In the last several years, Google has launched innovative programs to close the distance between Silicon Valley and HBCUs; we are proud to continue that commitment by matching Beyoncé’s generous donation.”
