Applications are now being accepted for the Gates Scholarship, a highly selective, full scholarship for distinguished, Pell-eligible, minority, high school seniors. Starting in 2018, the scholarship will be awarded to 300 top student leaders each year, with the intent of promoting their academic excellence throughout college graduation. Recipients will receive funding for the full cost of attendance not covered by other financial aid and the expected family contribution as determined by FASA. Interested applicants must have a minimum weighted GPA of 3.3, and the idea candidate will demonstrate outstanding academic performance, leadership ability, and exceptional personal success skills.
