ATLANTA — Three Georgia college students will receive scholarships funded by the money President Barack Obama received for the Nobel Peace Prize.

The $2,500-per-year scholarships are targeted at juniors studying math, science, engineering or technology and are interested in teaching. The Hispanic Scholarship Fund money goes to poor students attending college full-time with at least a 3.0 grade point average.

The Georgia winners are: Erik Ferguson at the University of Georgia, Rosy Gomez at Emory University and Elizabeth Keilhauer at Georgia College & State University.

The scholarship fund is one of 10 organizations sharing the president's $1.4 million Nobel money.
