The Gates Millennium Scholars Program, established in 1999, was initially funded by a
$1 billion grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The GMS Scholarship Award Provides:
Support for the cost of education by covering unmet need and self-help aid;
Renewable awards for Gates Millennium Scholars maintaining satisfactory academic progress;
Graduate school funding for continuing Gates Millennium Scholars in the areas of
computer science, education, engineering, library science, mathematics, public health or science;
Leadership development programs with distinctive personal, academic and professional growth
The biggest problem that we see in terms of GMS applications is that people don’t apply.
