Rihanna Announces Clara Lionel Foundation College Scholarship
Rihanna wants you to put in some “Work” to earn a scholarship. The Grammy Award-winning superstar announced that she is adding a global scholarship program to her Clara Lionel Foundation.
“To be able to give the gift of an education is actually an honor,” Rihanna said. “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.”
Rihanna encouraged students to apply in an Instagram post. "I'm very honored to announce the launch of @ClaraLionelFDN’s Global Scholarship Program today!!! Congrats to the class of 2016!! Apply now...," wrote the singer.
The scholarship fund will fund U.S. college educations for students from other countries. According to the foundation's website, students must be residents of Barbados, Brazil, Cuba, Haiti, Guyana, Jamaica, or the U.S. Grants will range from $5,000 to $50,000 for 50 finalists and are eligible for renewal for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned.
