Winner of the Hinkle Scholarship.

Both boys and girls are eligible to apply for a scholarship, which is administered by Scholarship Fund for Women. A board of Trustees reviews all applicants and selects those most worthy and likely to continue their education. Each year there are many who apply and the selection is difficult because Tehachapi High School produces many outstanding students.

American Association of University Women is one of the largest providers of local scholarships in this community. AAUW has given over $275,000 to Tehachapi High School graduates since the first $1,000 award was given 40 years ago. This year scholarships totaling $15,700 were given.

AAUW is a diverse organization for women which advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education and research. Information is available at
