Sacred Heart University recently received a $38,000 contribution from AT&T to support 31 undergraduate scholarships for students with satisfactory academic performance, financial need, and a demonstrated commitment to their careers will be able to participate.
Each will get a $1,200 scholarship for the 2014-2015 academic year, the school announced.
Eduardo Arosemena, Sacred Heart’s vice president of development and relations, said “the AT&T Scholarship will allow some of our most dedicated students, whom also happen to need help from private donors, to pursue higher academic education.”
Sacred Heart University was founded some 134 years ago as an all-girls schools established by the Religious Order of the Society Sacred Heart. Over the years, the university has produced thousands of successful graduates, who now hold leadership positions in Puerto Rico and abroad.
“We appreciate AT&T’s commitment for offering our talented students the opportunity to complete their higher education,” said University President Gilberto Marxuach-Torrós,
“At AT&T, our legacy is not to just support our communities though our philanthropic efforts, we want to make them stronger,” said Ray Flores, AT&T Puerto Rico regional vice president. “These scholarships will make it possible for the students selected to become stronger leaders and contribute to the building of their own communities.”
AT&T has a long-standing commitment to enriching the communities it serves through a number of social responsibility programs.
