About the Gates Millennium Scholars Program
The Gates Millennium Scholars (GMS) Program began with a $1 billion grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in 1999. Each year, the GMS Program selects 1,000 talented students to receive a “good-through-graduation” scholarship to use at the college or university of their choice. Gates Millennium Scholars receive personal and professional
development through leadership programs along with academic support throughout their college career. Students are of minority ethnic background, the first in their families to attend college, demonstrate high academic and leadership potential, and have significant financial need.
