Beyoncé has partnered with luxury jewelry design house Tiffany & Co. to fund scholarships for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Tiffany & Co. has released a limited edition capsule collection tied to Queen Bey's Renaissance World Tour to support this initiative. Recipient universities include Lincoln University, Norfolk State University, Bennett College, University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, and Central State University.
In a groundbreaking collaboration, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and Tiffany & Co. are championing the importance of education by funding scholarships for HBCUs. To support this cause, Tiffany & Co. has introduced the “About Love” Scholarship collection, a limited edition capsule collection tied to Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour.

The collection consists of necklaces featuring a horse figure on the front, symbolizing resilience, strength, and freedom, and engravings that read “Welcome to the Renaissance” on the front and “Beyonce” on the back pendant.
The funds from the collection will be directed towards the “About Love” Scholarship Program. This program is a continued collaboration between the Shawn Carter Foundation, BeyGOOD, and Tiffany & Co., aimed at empowering students from HBCUs and providing them with financial support to pursue their dreams. The high-profile entertainer hopes to positively impact young individuals’ lives and advance education within the Black community through this initiative.
With its commitment to supporting HBCUs, the collection’s proceeds will provide scholarships to students attending several esteemed institutions. The recipient universities include Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, Norfolk State University in Virginia, Bennett College in North Carolina, University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, and Central State University in Ohio.
By allocating these funds to these esteemed institutions, Beyoncé and Tiffany & Co. aim to create more opportunities for students and ensure that they have access to quality education.
The limited edition “About Love” Scholarship collection is now available at tiffany.com. Each necklace in the collection comes with three different styled chains, providing options for every style preference.
The prices range from $275 to $700, allowing supporters to contribute to the scholarship fund while acquiring a beautifully crafted piece of jewelry.
In 2021, Beyoncé and Jay-Z appeared in Tiffany & Co.’s viral “About Love” campaign, flaunting exquisite jewels. The couple’s collaboration with Tiffany & Co. garnered attention and excitement for the brand and highlighted the power of love and unity.
Beyonce also made history by wearing Tiffany & Co.’s iconic Tiffany Diamond, becoming the first Black woman and the fourth person ever to wear it.
Lizzo, the acclaimed artist behind “About Damn Time,” has recently launched a music scholarship at her alma mater, the University of Houston. The “Sasha Be Flooting” Music Scholarship aims to support students who are passionate about music and allow them to pursue their dreams in the music industry.
