The Gates Millennium Scholarship was a great opportunity for minorities and high achieving students to gain an all-expenses-paid scholarship towards their college education. As some of you might know it was sadly discontinued for the class of 2017. The good news is that it has been revamped and is now available for the class of 2018. I don't know how the application process is going to be different from the old one (more details will be revealed when the application opens on July 15) but I just wanted to give a heads up to my fellow rising seniors who are interested.
