        Scholarships to Bilingual, Bicultural Students

 Deadline: June 30, 2004

 Scholarships are available for Spanish-speaking, bi-

  Systems, Inc., the awards are offered through PacifiCare's

  Latino Health Scholars program, which is designed to

  eight states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada,

  Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, and Washington. High-school

  seniors with a minimum grade-point average (GPA) of 3.0
