On Saturday, Parkwood Entertainment announced that Beyoncé and Jay-Z will be awarding $100,000 each to 11 high school students for the 2018-2019 school year.
The students will be awarded based on academic merit and financial need and selected by Boys and Girls Club of America branches in 11 “On the Run II” markets—Atlanta, Orlando, Miami, Arlington, New Orleans, Houston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Clara and Seattle. Once selected, the $100,000 would be a dedicated university-based fund that would be used for the student’s expenses throughout their enrollment in college.
