BOSTON GLOBE 'PAPER ROUTE TO COLLEGE' PROGRAM PASSES $9 MILLION

 BOSTON, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boston Globe announced today that its Paper Route to College program for newscarriers has reached a total of $9.3 million in college tuition assistance as of Sept. 1 since the program began. The money has helped 2,198 students with the costs of higher education.
 The $9.3 million represents total payments made by the Globe since the first awards in the program were made on July 1, 1988 -- a period of just over five years.
 The program offers one-year's tuition up to $5,000 for carriers who have satisfactorily delivered the Globe for four years in a home-delivery route.
 The program began Jan. 1, 1986 with a three-year commitment, and on July 1, 1991, due to the recession's effects on the company, expanded to a four-year commitment. The first awards were made July 1, 1988, when the first group of carriers became eligible.
 The average grant is nearly $4,250 with payment sent directly to the school, and is in addition to the regular compensation carriers get for delivering the paper.
