Hwang, a native of Maryland Heights, Mo., was selected as one of 4,000 students to receive this award from more than 62,000 individuals who were nominated.
Hwang had to obtain at least a 3.3 GPA at Truman, enroll as a full-time student in an accredited four year program, demonstrate leadership skills and community involvement and show significant financial need in order to be nominated for this award. At Truman, Hwang is currently a member of Phi Sigma Pi, a national honor fraternity.
Beginning this fall, Hwang will receive funds for the cost of tuition, fees, books not covered by grants and scholarships already committed as part of her financial package. The Gates Millennium Scholar program’s goal is to provide financial assistance to outstanding low-income African-American, Native American, Hispanic American and Asian-Pacific American students, eliminating the need for outside student loans.
The new 20-year, $1 billion Gates Millennium Scholar program is expected to help more than 20,000 minority students attend college. The program was created through a grant of private money from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and is administered by the United Negro College Fund in partnership with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, American Indian College Fund and the Organization of Chinese Americans.
