Bill Gates Announces Low-Income Minority Student Scholarship Program

SEATTLE - The Gates Millennium Scholarship Program (GMS) will select 1,000 low-income minority students to receive a good-through-graduation scholarship to use at any college or university of their choice.

Scholars will also be provided with personal and professional development through their leadership programs, along with academic support throughout their college career.

A statement on the group's website says the program, funded by a grant from the Bill & 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.

To date, the program has given scholarships to more than 15,000 students.
