The Gates Millennium Scholars Program, funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, was established in 1999 to provide outstanding African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian Pacific Islander American, and Hispanic American students with an opportunity to complete an undergraduate college education at a school of their choice in any discipline area of interest.
Continuing Gates Millennium Scholars may request funding for a graduate degree program in one of the following discipline areas: computer science, education, engineering, library science, mathematics, public health or science.

Based on the profiles of recently named scholars such as, Carneisha Daniels (in the same John Tyler Highschool graduating class as my niece Ebonee Bell), it takes several years of dedicated focus and support from school staff, family and the community.  This is needed in order to have access to resources and opportunities necessary to gain valuable experience that differentiates applicants.  After all, over 54,000 students apply every year and only 1,000 are chosen.  Now that’s some stiff competition.
