To ease enrollment into college

Beyonce and Jay Z recently launched a scholarship that will help ease enrollment of students into college.  According to the press release, the scholarship ‘will award one exceptional senior high school student, with financial needs, 100K to put toward their enrollment in a college or university for the academic year 2018-2019. The award will serve as a dedicated university-based fund for each selected student throughout the duration of the student’s enrollment.”

Will.I.Am’s I am College Track also helps students prepare for college by removing barriers that would limit them from accessing higher education.
