Back in April, Beyoncé announced that she would be marking the one-year anniversary of her Lemonade album by creating the The Formation Scholars Award.

Now, she has announced the recipients of her merit scholarship program with a post on her website:

Students’ disciplines included creative arts, music , literature and African-American studies. All applicants maintain a 3.5 GPA or above and submitted a short essay stating how LEMONADE inspired their educational goals. All finalists and winners were selected by committees from the colleges and universities.

The four recipients are: Sadiya Ramos, a sophomore at the Berklee College of Music; Avery Youngblood, a second-year student at Parson’s School of Design; Maya Rogers, a graduate student at Howard University; and Bria Paige, a junior at Spelman College.

Applicants were considered from Berklee College of Music, including the colleges in Boston and Valencia, Spain, Berklee online and Boston Conservatory at Berklee; Howard University in Washington, DC; Parsons School of Design at The New School in New York City; and Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, according to Beyoncé’s website.
