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!

Well done!!
