JAY-Z AND BEYONCE TO DONATE MORE THAN $1 MILLION IN SCHOLARSHIPS TO STUDENTS IN OTR II TOUR CITIES

Jay and Bey are certainly no strangers to charity. The power couple is getting ready to fund education in a major way as they plan to donate $100,000 to one student in each of 11 cities they’re visiting during their On the Run II tour to go towards college tuition and expenses.

According to a press release, one student will be chosen from Atlanta, Orlando, Miami, Arlington, New Orleans, Houston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Clara and Seattle to receive $100,000 from Bey and Jay. That puts their total donation to 11 students nationwide at $1.1 million. The incredibly lucky students will be chosen by the local Boys & Girls Clubs, once the student provides proof of both academic excellence and financial need to afford higher education. The funding is a collaboration of both Jay-Z and Beyonce’s charitable organizations, The Shawn Carter Foundation and the BeyGOOD initiative, respectively.
