Rihanna Launches College Scholarships For Foreign Students

Please see this story on NPR about a scholarship for foreign students from Rihanna’s Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation

More information and the application will be available here after April 27, 2017.

From the NPR:

In her song “American Oxygen,” Rihanna sings, “On the other side of the ocean, you can be anything at all / in America, America.”

Now the pop star and Barbados native is putting some of her money where her mouth is. On Monday she announced on Instagram the launch of a scholarship program to help citizens or natives of Brazil, Barbados, Cuba, Haiti, Grenada, Guyana and Jamaica attend college in the U.S.

According to the terms of the program, each selected first-year student will receive between $5,000 and $50,000, and the awards may be renewed until each grantee earns a bachelor’s degree. What is unclear, however, is how much total money the foundation plans to disburse each year.
