Summary:
Lucent Technologies has announced the establishment of the Lucent Global Science Scholars Program -- a $10 million investment over the next 10 years to encourage the world's youth to pursue careers in technology.

MURRAY HILL, N. J. - Lucent Technologies today announced the establishment of the Lucent Global Science Scholars Program - a $10 million investment over the next 10 years to encourage the world's youth to pursue careers in technology.

"It's the job of companies like Lucent to help develop the next generation of technology-savvy people who will help shape the future of communications," said Richard A. McGinn, chairman and CEO of Lucent. "In addition to a one-time scholarship, the program also will establish a partnership between the students and the scientists at Bell Labs."

McGinn said scholarship recipients will spend one week in the summer with Bell Labs researchers and scientists at Murray Hill. "Much more than a scholarship, our program will provide students a unique opportunity to experience the world of science and technology and meet with our scientists, researchers and executives," he said.

Eighty winners will be announced in the spring and they will each receive a $5,000 scholarship from the Lucent Foundation. Additionally, Lucent will provide a summer internship for scholarship recipients at Bell Labs locations around the globe.

In the United States the program is open to graduating high school seniors. The deadline for applications from U. S. candidates is Feb. 1, 1999. Outside the United States participants will be freshmen at leading technical universities. International deadlines vary by country up until May 1, 1999. In the first year, students in 10 countries will be eligible for the program.

Scholarships and internships will be awarded to students in Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, Japan, Mexico, The Netherlands, Thailand, The United Kingdom and The United States.

Information about the Lucent Global Science Scholars Program is available to students in the U. S. from The National Alliance for Excellence of Shewsbury, N. J., by calling 732-747-0028.

Outside the U. S., the program is being administered for Lucent by the Institute of International Education of New York City. International students can receive information by calling +1-212-984-5388.

Lucent Technologies, with headquarters in Murray Hill, N.J., USA, designs, builds and delivers a wide range of public and private networks, communications systems and software, data networking systems, business telephone systems and microelectronics components. Bell Labs is the research and development arm for the company. For more information on Lucent Technologies, visit the company's web site at http://www.lucent.com.
