About the Scholarship

Scholars will receive funding for the full cost of attendance that is not already covered by other financial aid and the expected family contribution, as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  

Costs covered include tuition, fees, books, room and board, and may include additional personal costs.  The Gates Scholarship also provides Scholars with various online support services designed to help them excel in their degree programs, graduate, and make a successful transition to their chosen careers. These include mentoring, academic support, career and internship guidance, advice, and job opportunities. Gates Scholars will also be connected to a network of accomplished peers that they can tap into for support and advice.
