Beyoncé is keeping the momentum rolling from last weekend’s epic Coachella performance by revealing the names of the schools involved in her BeyGOOD initiative’s Homecoming Scholars Award Program.

According to Rolling Stone, the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) that will benefit from the program are Xavier University, Wilberforce University, Tuskegee University and Bethune-Cookman University.

One student from each of the HBCUs will receive $25,000 from BeyGOOD for the 2018-2019 academic year.

“We honor all institutions of higher learning for maintaining culture and creating environments for optimal learning which expands dreams and the seas of possibilities for students,” Ivy McGregor, Director of Philanthropy and Corporate Relations at Parkwood Entertainment, said in a statement. Parkwood houses the BeyGOOD initiative.

Recipients of the Homecoming Scholars Award will be chosen by the universities and announced this summer. Beyoncé originally founded the scholarship program in April 2017 to celebrate the anniversary of her critically acclaimed Lemonade album.
