The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will award a $1 million stem cell scholarship to Bill Gates and his family to support the next generation of stem cell researchers.
The Bill &s; Melita Gates Foundation announced the award at its annual meeting in San Francisco, California.
The Gates Foundation said it is supporting the program in three ways:The Gates Family Scholarship will be awarded to the recipient of a research grant made through the Bill <amp;Melinda Gates Institute, Inc. grant program.
The grant, administered by the Bill and Melinda Foundation, will be made available to eligible donors through the end of the fiscal year.
The fund will be distributed through two grants that will be jointly administered by Gates Foundation and the Bill Gates Foundation.
The Bill Gates Family Award is a two-year program for eligible recipients of the Bill&M&lt;Bill Gates Scholarship and a two year grant to support stem cell scientists.
“I’m grateful for the support of the Gates Foundation in supporting the research of new technologies, but the most important thing we can do is keep kids in the loop about stem cell science,” Gates said in a statement.
“By supporting research, we can ensure that they get the training and care they need, and that they have the tools they need to build better and better and healthier lives.”
This is the second time the Gates family has given to stem cell and stem cell technology.
The first, announced in May, was announced in 2012.
