Summary
In 1999, the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation started the Gates Millennium Scholars Program (GMS), a 20-year initiative which intends to expand access to higher education for high achieving, low-income minority students. In addition to its academic objectives, GMS also has the goal of creating future leaders in minority groups. The program is administered by the United Negro College Fund (UNCF). Awardees can receive the scholarship for up to 5 years as an undergraduate and 4 years as a graduate student. The scholarship is renewable through graduate school in math, science, engineering, library science, and education. To be eligible for GMS, students had to meet several qualifications. They must: (1) be of African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian American, Hispanic/Latino, or Pacific Islander background; (2) be full-time students entering college or university; (3) have a GPA of at least 3.3 on a 4.0 scale; (4) be eligible for Pell Grants; and (5) be leaders in community service, extracurricular, or other activities. These data include selected variables from administrative data as collected by UNCF. There are 5 major data sources from which these data were compiled, which include: <list type="ordered"> <itm>United Negro College Fund (UNCF) Administrative Databases;</itm> <itm>National Student Clearing House (NSC);</itm> <itm>Higher Education Directory (HED);</itm> <itm>Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA); and</itm> <itm>Institutional Student Information Records (ISIRs).</itm> </list> These data were collected to represent the aggregation of administrative data utilized throughout the GMS cohort-level data. The data was structured in a way to allow analysis and utility beyond the administrative data's original purpose. The initial release includes only records for GMS scholarship recipients and one higher education institution per person. Subsequent releases will include information for non-recipient finalists and the full spectrum of institutions attended
