Beyoncé is the gift that keeps on giving.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the legendary entertainer is keeping her commitment to blessing students with money to attend college.
Ahead of the latest stop on her “Renaissance World Tour,” the Houston native provided ten students at the Detroit School for Digital Technology with $100,000 in funding as a part of the Renaissance Scholars program launched before embarking on the highly-anticipated event.
Giving Back To Detroit Students
“We were delighted to spend the morning with the Detroit School for Digital Technology, and announce that @dsdttech will receive $100K in Renaissance scholarship funds to support students with financial need,” an official rep for Beyoncé told the outlet.

As previously reported by AfroTech, the “Crazy In Love” crooner announced plans to contribute $2 million to support not only students but small businesses through her BeyGOOD foundation.
“As for students, the RENAISSANCE Scholarship Fund will distribute $100,000 to selected colleges and universities in ten cities on the tour including Paris, Philadelphia, Detroit, and Washington, D.C. The recipients will be selected by the participating higher learning institutions,” we reported in April 2023.
Launched in 2013, the organization remains committed to promoting economic equity and education within marginalized and under-resourced areas.
“I am hugely proud of the work we have done over a decade at BeyGOOD, here in the US and around the world,” said BeyGOOD Founder Beyoncé. “From scholarships to the water crisis in Burundi to helping families during Hurricane Harvey in my hometown, Houston, it has been beyond fulfilling to be of service. Now as a foundation, we will continue the work of engaging partners through innovative programs to impact even more people.”
The singer’s “Renaissance World Tour” was a success in Europe as AfroTech previously shared. The European leg of the event closed with a reported $154 million, and financial experts anticipate that the string of concerts will generate more than $2 billion in revenue when it’s all said and done.
