Anyone who has gone to or who is currently in college knows how crazy expensive textbooks can be. So for those of you who can’t spend hundreds on books each semester, make sure you use openstaxcollege.org . The site provides college students with free textbooks “that meet scope and sequence requirements for most courses.” When it comes to supporting financially struggling college students, Bill and Melinda Gates work miracles. As a Gates Millennium Scholar, I will be eternally grateful for the the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and their efforts to lessen the financial burden on college students all around the world. In addition to using openstaxcollege.org , you should  also look out for other Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funds and opportunities for students. Other sources of their student funding include programs like: The Gates Millenium Scholarship Program and The Gates Cambridge Scholarship  As a Gates Millennium Scholar, I would be more than happy to answer questions you may have about that particular program, my involvement in it, and what it entails.
