Beyonce and Jay-Z will be giving away over one million dollars to help students in need pay for college.
The hip-hop couple will be giving 100-thousand dollars to one high school senior from eleven different cities they'll be stopping at on their On the Run II tour. Each student will be selected by the local Boys & Girls Club.
The cities they'll be selected from include Atlanta, Los Angeles, Houston, Phoenix and Miami.
The donations are a collaboration of Jay-Z and Beyonce's charities, the BeyGOOD initiative and The Shawn Carter Foundation.

The Shawn Carter Foundation hosts tours to historically Black colleges and universities and offers scholarships to students headed to college. The organization was founded in 2003 by Jay Z and his mother, Gloria Carter.
The BeyGood initiative, headed by Beyoncé, has created a merit program called the Formation Scholars Award. The program helps female students reach educational goals. Another program, the Homecoming Scholars Award, provides resources for students to study at HBCUs, according to the announcement.
