The AT&T IDEAL ERG is extremely pleased to announce the winners of our 2017 scholarship award! Every year IDEAL offers this award to AT&T employees and their immediate family members who are high school seniors or college undergraduates. The award is based on a number of criteria – an essay on questions critical to the disabled community, academic credentials, extracurricular activities, awards and achievements, and work experience. We received almost 500 applications; and as in past years, many more were deserving of an award - more than our budget allowed. In the end, applications from 16 outstanding students are receiving the $1,000 award.
Please join us in congratulating these very deserving winners!
