Congrats to our Gates Millennium Scholars

Atlanta Public Schools is proud to announce 17 students from the class of 2015 have been named Gates Millennium Scholars!

Gates Scholars receive full financial support for the cost of their college education as well as graduate school funding in the areas of mathematics, public health, science, library science, and engineering and computer science education.  It is a rigorous application process that requires students to not only excel academically but also write multiple lengthy essays.  Nationally, more than 50,000 students applied for the scholarship this year and out of 1,000 chosen, seventeen belong to APS!  I am so proud.

The program was established in 1999 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
