Lab Notes

Blood Drive, March 19
Fermilab’s blood drive will be held on March 19, 2002 9am to 2pm at WH Ground floor EOC room and the NE ES&H Training Room. Due to the overwhelming turnout we had last summer, we are expanding our efforts to have more Heartland Blood Center staff on hand to shorten the waiting time. Please call Lori Limberg at ext 6615 or email LLimberg@fnal.gov to schedule an appointment. Walk-ins are welcome (we will try to work everyone in), but scheduled appointments will take priority.

Universities Research Association (URA) awards a number of scholarships to children of regular, full-time Fermilab employees. URA scholarships are awarded on the basis of SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) scores. Scholarship candidates must be high school seniors who will begin a four year college degree program next fall. The maximum amount of the scholarship is $3,500 for tuition and fees, and is renewable for four years for students in good academic standing. Applications are available January 1 through March 1. Scholarships will be awarded in early April. Questions about the program may be directed to Jeannelle Smith of Human Resources, Mail Station 124, x4367.

Requests can be made for any period and need not commence on any particular date.
