The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
We're funding scholarships to expand access to college for low-income and minority students and to encourage public service and leadership in the following ways:
Remove financial barriers for low-income students who are ready for college.
We're funding scholarships to give college-ready, highly motivated students the opportunity to attend the college of their choice. Most of our programs focus on low-income and minority students. Some programs fund additional graduate study in the areas of public health, education, science, engineering, mathematics, and library science.
Help low-income students get ready to succeed in college.
We're funding college scholarships in select high schools, working to raise college aspirations and readiness in low-income communities. One program is in our home state of Washington; the other is in the nation's capital. Both provide academic, financial, and social support - from tutoring and mentoring to career counseling and leadership training - to prepare 7,250 low-income students to enter college, stay in college, and graduate with a bachelor's degree.
Sponsor future leaders committed to improving the lives of others.
We're creating an international network of future leaders to work in agriculture, health, technology, law, and learning - and make the world a better place. Scholarships fund graduate studies for 1,000 international students at Cambridge University in England, for 1,000 U.S. students pursuing careers in public service law at the University of Washington, and for 360 female, African scientists pursuing careers in agricultural research and development in sub-Saharan Africa.
