Cingular Wireless has created a new $20,000 scholarship for Georgia Tech students who plan careers in telecommunications.

The scholarship will be split between two students enrolled in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering program. The scholarships will be awarded to juniors and seniors.

The program is part of Cingular’s 20th anniversary of operation.

John Parish, a rising junior from Kingwood, TX, is the first winner.
