 AMOCO CORPORATION ANNOUNCES SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS FOR MINORITY STUDENTS
 MIAMI, June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Fifty minority students today received college scholarships worth a total of $50,000, thanks to Amoco Oil Company and more than 80 of its service-station dealers in south Florida.
 Forty-five college-bound, minority high school students each received $1,000 scholarships to begin studies this year. Also, $1,000 scholarships were awarded to five 1991 Amoco scholarship winners who currently are excelling in college.
 The scholarships were awarded from the Amoco Dealers Minority Scholarship Fund, which was created in 1991 to encourage Hispanic, African-American, and Asian youth from Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties to continue their education.
 Amoco and its participating dealers raised $25,000 for the 1992 fund through personal contributions, raffle ticket sales, and a Three Kings Day Parade promotion in January. Also, the Amoco Foundation donated $25,000 for the scholarships.
 The 50 scholarship winners were chosen from more than 1,000 students who submitted applications to Aspira of Florida, Inc., a local community group that received a $5,000 grant from the Amoco Foundation to administer the program. The selection was based on grades, financial need, extracurricular activities, career goals, and their answers to essay questions. The final review of the applicants' qualifications was conducted by a committee of Amoco dealers and representatives of Amoco and Aspira.
