All applicants must maintain a 3.5 GPA or above. All finalists and winners will be selected by the universities. Winners will be announced this summer.”

This is the second year Mrs. Carter has funded a scholarship, on the one year anniversary of Lemonade, she partnered with four colleges and universities across the country to launch the Formation Scholars program.
