being named a 2011 Gates Millennium Scholar!
This scholarship pays full tuition, room and board for any
undergraduate major and will also pay for graduate studies in certain
fields. One of my former students is a Gates scholar attending Holy
Cross planning to become a doctor... and Gates will pay for it. It's
really an amazing opportunity.
Of the 1,000 awarded in the US and territories, 21 are APS seniors. :)
