GENERAL MOTORS CONTRIBUTES $350,000 TO FUND KEY PROGRAMS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI-ROLLA'S ENGINEERING SCHOOL

 ROLLA, Mo., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- General Motors (NYSE: GM) announced today that it is committing $350,000 over a five-year period (1993-1997) to fund key programs at the University of Missouri-Rolla's (UMR) Engineering School.
 "Based on UMR's tradition of academic excellence and the outstanding credentials of its faculty, General Motors is proud to announce this new partnership," said Rodney O'Neal, director of Manufacturing Operations for GM's Automotive Components Group (ACG).
 O'Neal presented a GM Foundation check to UMR officials at a ceremony attended by GM executives from Detroit as well as members of the UMR Corporate Development Council.
 The Corporate Development Council is an association of 64 major industrial concerns which have traditionally recruited at, and provided significant financial support to, the University of Missouri-Rolla.
 "Among the many activities which GM's $350,000 contribution will fund are increased scholarship opportunities for minorities and women. In addition, a number of high-tech, automotive-related research projects will be underwritten by the grant," noted the ACG executive.
 Over the years, the University of Missouri-Rolla has partnered with GM on a number of projects and is among a select group of educational facilities from which GM recruits.
 "As business conditions within the auto industry improve, we're optimistic that the scholarship components of the grant can assist our company in the identification of future candidates for employment at GM," added O'Neal.
