ATLANTA -- A 25-year tradition continued Thursday as 50 students from four Georgia universities received grants for long-term graduate study.

In ceremonies at Atlanta’s downtown Ritz Carlton, the Atlanta chapter of the ARCS Foundation awarded $370,000 in grants to students at the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Emory and Morehouse.

In the last 25 years, the all-female organization has awarded more than $4.5 million in scholarships to 450 students.

The students received grants for engineering, mathematics, science and medicine.

Nationally, the ARCS Foundation has granted more than $100 million to 9,000 students since 1958.
