Rihanna keeps working by launching a need-based scholarship program for college students through her Clara Lionel Foundation.
The new program will award scholarships ranging from $5,000 to $50,000 to qualified international and U.S. students that have been admitted to a four-year U.S. college. To be eligible, applicants must be a resident of the U.S., Barbados, Cuba, Brazil, Jamaica, Guyana, or Haiti. The application process is open until June 10, when a committee will then select the recipients from a pool of 50 finalists.
Rihanna said in a statement:
“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.”
