*Rihanna is looking to help financially-strapped students overseas who have been accepted at U.S. colleges.
Students from Barbados, Brazil, Cuba, Haiti, Guyana, and Jamaica are eligible for her global scholarship program if they’ve earned acceptance “into a bachelor’s degree program at an accredited four-year college or university in the United States for the 2016-2017 year,” according to USA Today.
“To be able to give the gift of an education is actually an honor,” said Rihanna, whose album ANTI remains in the top 5 on the Billboard 200 this week. “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.”
Scholarships will range from $5,000 to $50,000, based on criteria that a committee has put forth. That same team will screen all applicants and come up with a list of 50 finalists. Winners will be announced sometime before August.
The program was launched through Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation, founded in 2012 as a tribute to her grandparents Clara and Lionel Braithwaite.
