I am thinking about applying to the gates scholarship and am a very accomplished musician (pianist). I’ve played in carnegie multiple times, played in the us department of state, and won various international and national competitions.
Looking at the gates app, it seems they are highlighting leadership roles and community service. I’m wondering if they have a space for me to put what I’ve accomplished in music?
Also, how would they evaluate these achievements since it seems like they are really stressing the leadership thing and my stuff with music isn’t exactly “leadership”
