Beyoncé is surely a giver.

Earlier this week, Beyoncé gave a performance as part of her Renaissance World Tour in Detroit, and one Detroit college received a unique gift.

The BeyGOOD Foundation, a Beyoncé-funded non-profit organization, gave the Detroit School for Digital Technology $100,000 in scholarship support prior to the concert on Tuesday, July 25.

The artist promised to contribute $1 million in scholarships to colleges along her journey when she announced the Renaissance World journey.

Those who attended the ceremony where the grant was awarded also received tickets to Wednesday night's show in addition to the scholarship funding.

Astute Artistry, a school in Southwest Detroit, began classes in digital media, graphics, and technology in 2011.

"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," a Beyoncé rep told the Free Press.

When then-U.S. Vice President Joe Biden visited the southwest Detroit school in 2017, it had only recently opened. The school provides courses in business technology, digital marketing, and other subjects.

Beyoncé's concert at Ford Field on Wednesday is her first in Detroit since last year.

The DSDT scholarship isn't Beyoncé's first charitable endeavour in Michigan; in 2016, she gave $82,000 to Flint, Michigan, in support of water restoration efforts, with funds raised by fans during her Formation World Tour. She also set aside $1,000 apiece for 14 sophomores in high schools in the Detroit region who intend to attend college.
