BOSTON GLOBE 'PAPER ROUTE TO COLLEGE' PROGRAM PASSES $5 MILLION

 BOSTON GLOBE 'PAPER ROUTE TO COLLEGE' PROGRAM PASSES $5 MILLION
 BOSTON, March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boston Globe's Paper Route to college program for newscarriers has passed the $5 million mark as of March 1, with a total of $5,183,852 in college tuitions awarded since the program began. The grants have helped 1,268 students attend schools and colleges throughout the U.S.
 The $5.1 million represents total payments made by the Globe since the start of the program on Jan. 1, 1986. The Paper Route to College program offers one-year's tuition up to $5,000 for carriers who have satisfactorily delivered the Globe for a minimum of three years in a home-delivery route. The first awards in the voluntary program were made July 1, 1988, when the first group of carriers became eligible.
 The Globe awarded $624,719 in 1988 and $981,975 in 1989. In 1990, total payments were $1,456,095. Payments in 1991 totaled $1,708,727. The average grant is nearly $4,300, with payment sent directly to the school.
 The program was established to provide an incentive for youngsters to become and remain newscarriers for an extended period. The tuition award is in addition to the regular compensation that carriers receive for delivering the Globe.
 The Globe's Paper Route to College program for newscarriers is unique among newspapers nationwide in that every carrier with a home- delivery route can become eligible for the award.
 The Paper Route to College is the largest of several tuition assistance programs the Globe sponsors every year. Some are awarded as part of the Globe's Public Affairs programs, such as the Boston Globe Scholastic Arts Awards and the Mass. State Science Fair.
 Others include the Boston Globe Scholar-Athlete program, Co-operative Education Scholarships, and the John I. Taylor and William Davis Taylor Outstanding Scholars Program, a joint program providing full scholarships to selected students of the Boston Public Schools to the University of Massachusetts at Boston.
