Fourteen Atlanta Public Schools (APS) high school students have been awarded the Gates Millennium Scholarship. APS has more winners than any other school district in the state of Georgia.
“At a time when the perception of our academic programs has suffered, it is reassuring to see our students compete and achieve some of the most prestigious academic awards offered to high school students,” said Erroll B. Davis, Jr., superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools.
The Gates Millennium Scholars (GMS) Program selects 1,000 talented students each year to receive a good-through-graduation scholarship to use at any college or university of their choice. In addition, award recipients receive personal and professional development through Gates leadership programs along with academic support throughout their college career.
