AT&T GRANTS ONE-HALF MILLION DOLLARS TO HIGHER EDUCATION IN OHIO;
 PART OF NEARLY $20 MILLION FOR 90 U.S. COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES
 CLEVELAND, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T has announced grants totaling $575,246 to engineering and science programs at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland and the Ohio State University in Columbus.
 The two awards are part of a $19.5 million package going to 90 colleges and universities around the U.S.
 The AT&T programs include gifts of cash, equipment and loans of AT&T Bell Laboratories technical staff as visiting professors to engineering and computer science departments at 13 schools that serve predominantly minority populations.
 "In a free global economy, the success of U.S. business will depend more than ever on innovation and creative application of technology. We view this support as our share of the investment needed to keep America competitive," said Sarah Jepsen, executive director of the AT&T Foundation, the company's principal philanthropic arm.
 The recipient universities were invited to submit proposals under specialized programs, each overseen by Bell Labs scientists and other AT&T technical experts. The resulting grants are products of collaboration with university departments in identifying their most critical needs, Jepsen noted.
 "The combination of philanthropic dollars, state-of-the-art NCR computers and loan of AT&T human talent forms the glue that strengthens our bond with the leading universities producing America's future scientists and engineers," she said.
 The programs to strengthen engineering and science at universities constitute the major part of AT&T's involvement with educational improvement. The AT&T Foundation also supports pre-college programs to improve inner-city schools and to promote the study of math and science, even in primary grades.
