The Coca-Cola Foundation, the global philanthropic arm of Atlanta-based The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE: KO), has awarded grants totaling $1 million to six U.S. colleges and universities, including Georgia Institute of Technology and Morehouse College. The money will send approximately 160 students to study in China over the next four years in support of the U.S. State Department's "100,000 Strong Initiative."

The program, which supports President Barack Obama's vision to see 100,000 American students study abroad in China, is designed to enhance and strengthen ties between the citizens of the United States and China in the areas of education, culture, sports, science and technology, and women's issues, according to a company statement. The initiative has received strong support from the Chinese government and a number of U.S. companies, including Citigroup, Inc. (NYSE: C), Caterpillar, Inc. (NYSE: CAT) and Coca-Cola, the company said.

The U. S. colleges and universities receiving grants from The Coca-Cola Foundation for the China study-abroad programs include - in addition to Georgia Tech and Morehouse - Columbia University, Michigan State University, University of California-Los Angeles, and the University of Texas, Austin.
