  • International Taste of Los Alamos Says Thank You

    The 2010 International Taste of Los Alamos was a wonderful success, highlighting the culinary talents of local community members from 18 different countries around the globe.

    This year’s event raised money for UNM-LA Bridge Scholarships which allow qualifying students to “bridge” to their lottery scholarship. Lottery scholarships are awarded after the qualifying semester, thus some students do not have funds for their first semester tuition and books.  Bridge scholarships alleviate that problem for many students.
