Rihanna Promoting Scholarship Program

Nationwide (BlackNews.com) — Multi-platinum international superstar Rihanna started the the Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF) in 2012 in honor of her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite. Grants funded by the foundation are used to promote global programs in areas that Rihanna is most passionate about including health, education, arts and culture.

Current programs include the Clara Braithwaite Center for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Barbados, the Clara Lionel Foundation Global Scholarship Program and the Barbados Micro Grants for Schools Program.

Applicants to the scholarship program must be citizens or natives of the following countries: Brazil, Barbados, Cuba, Haiti, Grenada, Guyana, or Jamaica. They also must have already been accepted into an accredited four-year college or university for the entire upcoming academic year.

Renewal of the award is contingent upon the student’s academic performance, maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. The award can be renewed every three years or until a bachelor’s degree is met, depending on which occurs first.

Rihanna, who was born and raised in Barbados, says she believes that “to be able to give the gift of an education is actually an honor.” Every year, she raises millions of dollars for education at her foundation’s annual Diamond Ball.
