Gates Millennium Scholarship: 1,000 students per year are selected. Awards encompass tuition, fees, books and living expenses for the academic year. Requirements are: Must be a student of color, Be a citizen or a legal permanent resident of the United States, Have a GPA of 3.3 or higher, Have demonstrated leadership abililities, Meet the eligibility criteria for a Federal Pell Grant. Yes, this is a labor intensive scholarship to apply for, but less than one month of hard work could pay more than a year’s worth of a full time job.
The Junior projects have started. Betsy will be coming to your English classes to go over the requirements and deadlines. NOTE: If you do Not have an English class this trimester you must come in and make an appointment with Betsy.
