The Comcast Foundation is handing out $663,000 in scholarships to 663
high-school seniors, the company said Tuesday.

Each student -- all of whom live in communities in Comcast Cable Communications Inc.'s Eastern and
Midwest divisions -- will receive a one-time grant of $1,000 to be used toward
their college education.

"It's important to encourage our youth to develop leadership skills," Comcast Corp. president Brian Roberts said.
