Ladies! Beyoncé is putting her money where her always empowering mouth is. Deets inside on the college scholarship program she just launched for young women...

Who run the world?! Girls. Beyoncé already told y'all this. Now, she's backing it up with money and it's all in celebration of the one year anniversary of Lemonade.

Mrs. Knowles-Carter just announced that she will fully support four fabulous young women, called Formation Scholars, who are studying creative arts, music, literature, or African-American studies.

The four “Formation Scholars” awards aim to “encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident,” a statement on her website today reads.

The scholarships will be available for the 2017-2018 academic year for eligible students at Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design, and Spelman College.

Check out her full statement below:
