UPDATE: The new Gates Scholarship program is now live! Applications for the 2018 graduating class will be open July 12 – September 15, 2017.
——–Updated July 7, 2017——–
Congrats, 2016 GMSP applicants! You’ve submitted those applications (eight long, grueling essays included) and scrambled to get those recommender and nominator forms in on time!
Word on the street (aka, the internet) is: 2016 is the final year of the Gates Millennium Scholars Program. Fear not! GMSP award winners from the 2016 cohort will still receive ALL 10 YEARS of funding.
According to reports, the “Gates Millennium Scholars Program” will be replaced by the “Gates Scholarship“. The new Gates Scholarship will start accepting applications in 2018. Sorry, high school graduating class of 2017! 😦
So far, the following details have been announced: The Gates Scholarship will
- Support students through their undergraduate studies (translation: there will be no support for MS and PhD degrees)
- Award 300 scholarships per year
- Be administered by the Hispanic Scholarship Fund but will NOT be limited to Hispanic students
