Through her non-profit organization, the Clara Lionel Foundation, Rihanna has launched a global scholarship program for college-bound students around the world, who are attending school in the U.S.
The select countries included for now are Barbados, Brazil, Cuba, Haiti, Guyana, Jamaica and the States, and the student must be accepted into a bachelor’s degree program at an accredited four-year college or university in the United States for the 2016-2017 year to be eligible.
Scholarships available range from $5,000 to $50,000 and may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned – whichever occurs first. The goal is to “accept as many students as possible,” so get those applications started, kids! Here are a few more details:
Applications for the full-tuition grant are open now through June 10, 2016. A committee will screen 50 finalists based on academic performance, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience and a personal essay, and the scholarship winners will be announced by August, 2016.
