In its inaugural year — the 2017-2018 school year — the scholars will be selected from four different schools: Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design, and Spelman College.

“Four scholarships will be awarded, one per college, to female incoming, current, or graduate students pursuing studies in the creative arts, music, literature, or African-American studies,” reads the statement.
