BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Two high school students in Baton Rouge are recipients of a scholarship that's so good it's almost unbelievable.

Aaliyah Furqan, a senior at Capitol High School, will have her tuition fully paid by Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates.

The scholarship is for whatever college she chooses and the money covers her education until graduation.

The other Gates Millennium Scholar winner in Baton Rouge is senior Scott Dominique from Scotlandville Magnet High.

Congratulations to both outstanding students.
