NEW YORK, July 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Beyoncé Knowles-Carter announces the eight recipients of the Homecoming Scholars Award for the 2018-2019 academic year. 

The Homecoming Scholars Award Program for 2018-2019 is a merit program and was announced in April.  It is the second scholarship merit program from Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and BeyGOOD. The Formation Scholars Award Program was announced in the spring of 2017 and was open to female students across a variety of studies.

The Homecoming Scholars Award Program, announced after Beyoncé's brilliant first weekend Coachella performance, an homage to excellence in education and a celebration of the homecoming weekend experience, named four universities and extended the program to all qualifying students at the universities, regardless of gender.

The 2018-2019 disciplines include literature, creative arts, African-American studies, science, education, business, communications, social sciences, computer science, engineering and more. All applicants must maintain a 3.5 GPA or above. 

Google.org partnered with BeyGOOD following Beyoncé's second weekend Coachella performance, to add four more schools, including Fisk University, the alma mater of Beyoncé's father, Mathew Knowles and Morehouse College, the alma mater of Parkwood President & COO, Steve Pamon.

All qualifying applicants submitted a 1,000-word essay about one African or African-American thought leader in their field who has inspired them to achieve their goals (educational, professional, and/or community-driven). The essay included how they plan to contribute to history through their own life's work. All finalists and the eight recipients were selected by committees from the colleges and universities.
