Rihanna Is Going to Help Students Pay for College news

Earlier today, Rihanna announced a new international and U.S. college scholarship program that will help students earn a higher education. She is running the program through her Clara Lionel Foundation. She shared the news on Instagram.

The international program will assist citizens or natives of Brazil, Barbados, Cuba, Haiti, Grenada, Guyana, or Jamaica who plan to continue their education at a college in the United States, according to the scholarship’s website. The opportunity is available to students who are enrolled in a four-year college during the 2016-2017 school year, and scholarships will range from $5,000 to $50,000.

“To be able to give the gift of an education is actually an honor,” Rihanna said in a statement released to USA Today. “Higher education will help provide perspective, opportunities, and learning to a group of kids who really deserve it. I am thrilled to be able to do this.”

Rihanna has been busy recently, scoring a No. 1 track on the Billboard charts and hitting up cities on her ANTI World Tour. She has brought Drake out for a few of the tour stops during shows in Miami, Los Angeles, and Toronto where they have performed “Work” together. She also just dropped a new song with Calvin Harris, “This Is What You Came For.” Harris shared a teaser for the track’s music video over the weekend with a clip of Rihanna getting completely turnt in her chair as she was getting her nails done.
