The 2010 Gates Millennium Scholarship Program has launched; application deadline is January 11th!

This program, funded by a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, was established to provide outstanding low income minority students with an opportunity to complete an undergraduate college education in any discipline area of interest.

Continuing scholars may request funding for a graduate degree program in one of the following discipline areas: education, engineering, library science, mathematics, public health or science.

In addition to increasing access to higher education for these underrepresented groups, GMS also provides leadership training. Through participation in a comprehensive leadership development program, Scholars enhance academic and leadership skills, which prepare them to assume important roles in their professions and in their communities.

Students are eligible to be considered for a GMS scholarship if they:

  • Are African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian and Pacific Islander American, or Hispanic American;
  • Are a citizen/legal permanent resident or nationals of the United States;
