Gates Scholarship Amount

<p>Hey CC! I've recently learned that this scholarship does not cover EFC, and as being a low-enough income applicant as well as applying to mainly colleges that give 100% demonstrated financial need, I feel as if there isn't much monetary worth in this scholarship. If I'm already expected to pay only efc (Seeing i get into one of my college choices), does this mean that Gates Millenium Scholarship will cover nothing since the college will cover the majority? Thanks!</p>

<p>The Gates will cover any “unmet” need/any uncovered funds. In my situation, I had some grants that covered a good chunk of my tuition, but the Gates covered the rest that was NOT covered by the grants or anything else. However, my EFC was 0…</p>

<p>I don’t know if that helped answer your question.</p>

<p>what if you don’t have so many awards to fill out the awards section? My school doesn’t give out awards besides honor roll and I don’t think i can fill up them all.
did anyone else not fill up all the award or community service or leadership positions?</p>
