Rihanna announces CLF global scholarship program

While Rihanna’s latest hit may be called “Work,” students who want the singer to contribute to their college tuition will have to do just that.

According to ELLE, Rihanna announced the launch of the Global Scholarship Program that is part of her Clara Lionel Foundation on Monday, May 9. The scholarship is open to both citizens and natives of “Brazil, Barbados, Cuba, Haiti, Grenada, Guyana or Jamaica” who are “planning to go to college in the U.S.,” reports ELLE.

With the aim of helping students to pay their college tuition, scholarship awards will range in size, starting from $5,000 and peaking at $50,000. What’s more — ELLE says the scholarships can be renewed for up to three years.

The Clara Lionel Foundation specifies that “scholarship finalists are selected on the basis of academic performance, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of educational goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances and an outside appraisal.”

However, ELLE points out that financial need is not considered.

To apply for this year’s scholarship, applications are to be submitted here by June 10.
