Gates Millennium Scholarship
"Hoai An Truong, a junior studying biochemistry at CUA, has been selected as one of the first recipients of the Gates Millennium Scholarship. Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates earlier this month announced the first wave of scholarship candidates, chosen from more than 62,000 applicants from around the country. The award for minority college students concentrating on math, science and education was created from a $1 billion pledge over 20 years from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Approximately 4,100 scholarships will be awarded for the 2000-2001 academic year. The award will pay for what remains of Mr. Truong’s costs for tuition, books, room and board after his other scholarship offers have been taken into account, he said. "I was very excited. It’s going to be a big help for reducing the loans I've had to take out," said Mr. Truong, 21, a native of Vietnam who immigrated to the United States at the age of 10. "My parents are very happy for me." Catholic University nominated 10 students for the award. To be eligible, applicants needed to have at least a 3.3 GPA; be accepted into or enrolled in an accredited four-year undergraduate degree program or graduate degree program in mathematics, science, engineering, education or library science for the academic year 2000-2001; demonstrate leadership skills and community involvement, and demonstrate financial need. The United Negro College Fund is administering the scholarship program and overseeing the selection process, in partnership with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund and the American Indian College Fund."

Wow! Congratulations to Hoai! What a great opportunity. I wonder if his past education was the primary reason for him being chosen?
