Texas Tech receives $15M donation from ex-AT&T, GM exec

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Former General Motors Co. CEO Edward Whitacre Jr. and his wife have donated $15 million to his alma mater, Texas Tech University.

The school in Lubbock on Tuesday announced the gift meant for graduate student fellowships.

Whitacre, who's also chairman emeritus of Dallas-based AT&T Inc., received his bachelor's degree in industrial engineering from Texas Tech.

The school in 2008 recognized $25 million in contributions from AT&T and friends of Whitacre by naming the Tech's college of engineering in his honor.

The latest donation will fund about 30 doctoral fellows per year. The donation is eligible for state matching funds through the Texas Research Incentive Program.
