In today's edition of
"Turning Tassels Achieving Dreams,"
we are spotlighting two Project GRAD Akron scholars who have been awarded one of the most competitive scholarships to date. These two individuals have racked up a whopping full-ride to their preferred institutions with the opportunity to receive full financial coverage from the undergraduate level to doctorate. The chances of being awarded this scholarship is slim to none, as tens of thousands of high school students submit their applications every year. Project GRAD Akron is proud to tell you a little bit more about two scholars who have been awarded the Gates Millennium Scholarship.
There are a couple of eligibility requirements a potential candidate must meet in order to be considered for the Gates Millennium Scholarship. The requirements are:
- A high school senior
- From at least one of the following ethnicities: African-American, American Indian/Alaska Native*, Asian & Pacific Islander American, and/or Hispanic American
- A US citizen, national, or permanent resident
- In good academic standing with a minimum cumulative weighted GPA of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent)
Additionally, a student must plan to enroll full-time, in a four-year degree program, at a US accredited, not-for-profit, private or public college or university.)
