    Singer Beyonce on Monday said she was offering $100,000 in scholarship money to students at four historically African-American  colleges and universities in the United States.

    The donation came on the back of her acclaimed two-hour performance at the Coachella music festival.

    The Homecoming Scholars Award Program for the 2018-19 academic year will give away $25,000 in scholarship money to a student respectively at Xavier University of Louisiana, Wilberforce University in Ohio, Tuskegee University in Alabama and Bethune-Cookman University in Florida, the “Lemonade” album singer’s foundation said.

    It was the first time a black woman headlined the two-weekend festival, one of the biggest U.S. music gatherings of the year.

    Last year, the 36-year-old singer established a merit scholarship program to support young women.

    Beyonce will perform again at Coachella this Saturday and she and her husband, rapper Jay Z, are set to begin a U.S. and European tour together in June.
