Beyoncé is donating $100,000 in scholarship funding for 10 students at the Detroit School of Digital Technology.
When the most nominated female artist in Grammy history announced her Renaissance World Tour, she also revealed plans to donate $1 million in scholarship funding to colleges on her tour route, including Wednesday’s show at Ford Field in Detroit.
The Detroit School for Digital Technology in southwest Detroit offers programs in digital marketing, business technology, medical assistance and more. Beyoncé is donating the funds through her BeyGood foundation.
This isn’t Beyoncé’s first time donating to Michigan. In 2016 she assisted the city of Flint in their water relief efforts with an $82,000 donation, as well as designating $1,000 each for 14 Detroit area high school sophomores with college plans.
