About Us


The Gates Millennium Scholars (GMS) Mentoring program was created to support SDSU GMS students as they work toward completing their academic degree programs.  The goal of the GMS Mentoring Program is to connect undergraduate scholars to graduate students, faculty/staff,  as well as to connect scholars to campus support programs and resources.

The GMS Mentoring program hosts meetings every semester and promotes campus-wide activities in research, scholarship, leadership, and service.

Congratulations to the current SDSU Gates Scholars and we look forward to working with you!

The last Gates Millennium Scholarship has distributed to the 2016 cohort. The Gates Scholarship has been developed in its place and will award 300 scholarships each year starting in 2018.
