$100K Scholarships Available From Beyonce's BeyGOOD Foundation and Jay-Z's Shawn Carter Foundation

Beyoncé and Jay-Z, two of the world's most recognized entertainers, entrepreneurs, and philanthropists, have a scholarship program that they use to help outstanding high school students who need helping paying for college. In 2018, in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of America, they began giving scholarship awards of up to $100K to students that were in attendance at their concerts while on tour.
The Boys and Girls Club of America is the organization that selects the recipients. Applicants are chosen from various markets including: Seattle, San Diego, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Orlando, Miami, Arlington, New Orleans, Houston, Phoenix, and Santa Clara.

BeyGOOD is Beyoncé's charity program, created during the Mrs. Carter World Tour in 2013. In addition to funding scholarships, BeyGOOD also works with other local charities to help fundraise and raise awareness for local causes. Her charity has also promised to help UNICEF provide clean water to the country of Burundi.

The Shawn Carter Foundation was founded as a public charity in 2003 by Shawn “Jay Z” Carter and his mother, Gloria Carter. Since the Foundation’s beginning, over $4 million has been raised to support creativities that empower youth and communities in need. The foundation’s programs offer scholarships, college prep and exposure, international exposure, professional development, and support for community and goodwill initiatives.
