Beyoncé has partnered with Google to give more scholarships this year.
The singer's BeyGOOD initiative initially announced a $100,000 donation to four historically black colleges April 16, just after Beyonce's Coachella headlining set.
The announcement last week said that $25,000 each will go to Tuskegee University in Tuskegee, Alabama; Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Florida; Xavier University of Louisiana in New Orleans; and Wilberforce University in Wilberforce, Ohio, as part of the Homecoming Scholars Award Program for the 2018-2019 school year.
