The AT&T Ability (formerly IDEAL) ERG is extremely pleased to announce the winners of our 2018 scholarship program! Every year this scholarship is open to high school seniors and college undergraduate students. The award is based on a number of criteria – an essay on questions concerning the disabled community, academic credentials, extracurricular activities, leadership, awards and achievements, and work experience. As in past years, many more were deserving than our budget allowed.

Please join us in congratulating these 16 very deserving $1,000 award winners!  Well done!!
