North County HS Student Wins Prestigious Gates Scholarship
A special congratulations to North County senior Sarah Abdalla, recipient of the 2020 Gates Scholarship. Sarah will be attending Stanford University in the fall to study Computer Science and Electrical Engineering.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Gates Scholarship fully funds tuition, room & board, and other expenses for 300 students across the U.S. each year. “This prestigious scholarship program is based on evidence that by eliminating the financial barriers to college, a last-dollar scholarship can enable high-potential, low-income minority students to excel in their course work, graduate college, and continue to be leaders throughout their lives” (https://www.thegatesscholarship.org/)
