New AT&T Public Safety Scholarships Available to Delaware State University Students

We are proud to announce that AT&T Public Safety Scholarships are now available to eligible students enrolled at Delaware State University.

These new scholarships, which are made possible from an $18,000 grant from the AT&T Foundation, were announced today during a special event at Delaware State University in Dover, featuring college leadership; local, state and federal officials, including Delaware Lt. Governor Bethany Hall-Long; business leaders; students; and representatives from AT&T.

In addition to the scholarships, the grant will be used to develop eLearning Instructional videos and create two online learning strategy courses.
