Talk about #BlackGirlMagic!
Rihanna has launched a global scholarship program through the Clara Lionel Foundation which she founded in 2012 as a tribute to her grandparents, Clara Lionel Braithwaite.
The scholarship program is set to reward students from different countries who are going to college in the U.S.
Students from Barbados, Brazil, Cuba, Haiti, Guyana, and Jamaica are eligible for the award if they’ve earned acceptance into a bachelor’s degree program at an accredited four-year University. Rihanna released a video explaining why she decided to help students across the globe.
“To be able to give the gift of an education is actually an honor. Higher education will help provide perspective, opportunities, and learning to a group of kids who really deserve it. I am thrilled to be able to do this.”
