Still with Beyonce, the superstar singer has announced she will be offering four US students scholarships to mark a year since her album release.

The singer is commemorating the release of Lemonade by giving college places in the creative arts, music, literature and African-American studies.

In a statement on her website, Beyonce said the scholarships are designed to “encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box”.

They will be available at four universities for entry next year.

The students will be called Formation Scholars, named after one of the tracks on her 2016 album.
