After making history as the first black woman to headline Coachella, Beyoncé has expanded the scholarship program she launched previous year with new donations to four traditionally black universities. Bey has pledged $100,000 in scholarship money that will be split in four, and given to one student from each of the following schools: Tuskegee University, Bethune-Cookman University, Xavier University of Louisiana and Wilberforce University.

Beyonce first hit the Coachella stage wearing a sequin cropped sweatshirt, fishnet stalkings, cutoff shorts and Christian Louboutin fringe boots that she paired with black nail polish.

Beyonce will perform again at Coachella this Saturday and she and her husband, rapper Jay Z, are set to begin a US and European tour together in June. The jubilant set, housed on a pyramid stage with 150-plus cast members, dutifully in-sync, was the first time the icon returned to her home, the stage, in over one year. The Homecoming Scholars Award Program for 2018-2019 was expanded to all qualifying students at the four universities, regardless of gender. Winners will be announced this summer.
