Central State receives HBCU scholarship from Jay-Z and Beyoncé

WILBERFORCE, Ohio (WDTN) – The Shawn Carter Foundation has announced a $ 2 million scholarship fund for historically black colleges and universities, and some of that money is going to Miami Valley.

Central State University is one of five HBCUs to receive “About Love” scholarship funds, with:

  • Lincoln University
  • Norfolk State University
  • Bennett College
  • The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff

The Shawn Carter Foundation was founded by Gloria and her son, Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, in 2003 with the goal of helping those facing “socio-economic challenges” to pursue their post-secondary education.

The “About Love” Scholarships are a joint effort between Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Tiffany & Co.
