Free HIV testing sponsored by Nevada County Community Health is being offered on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Sierra Family Medical Clinic, 15301 Tyler Foote Rd., Nevada City. For more information, contact Patty Cambra at 265-1450.

Scholarships for women are available

The Nevada County branch of the American Association of University Women is soliciting applications for scholarships to be awarded to students for the 2002-03 school year. AAUW is committed to supporting women in Nevada County who wish to pursue a post-high school education.

AAUW is working with the Nevada Joint Union High School District to review candidates who apply as high school graduates. Young women whose academic achievement has been successful and whose application has been accepted will receive recognition and a scholarship award of $1,000 each at the spring awards nights at each of the high school campuses.

High school students may apply for these awards at either Bear River or Nevada Union High schools.

Re-entry scholarships are also available through the Nevada County Charter of AAUW. This is a scholarship for women residing in Nevada County whose education has been interrupted and who wish to return to a post-high school program to achieve a degree or advanced educational endeavor.

Students planning to graduate from Sierra College in Spring 2003 with plans to transfer to a four-year college or university are eligible to apply for this scholarship. Interested women may apply for this scholarship through the scholarship office at Sierra College.

If you know someone who may be interested in applying for the re-entry scholarships, contact Linda Kramer, scholarship chairperson, (530) 268-2800 or (916) 652-6059.

It is expected that the scholarships will be awarded in May. Applications are available now and are due April 1
