Thanks to the generosity of many donors, the College of Arts and Sciences offers several scholarships to its students. Scholarships are awarded each spring for the following academic year. We will begin accepting applications for the 2013-14 academic year.
To be considered for any of these scholarships, you must be enrolled and currently attending at the time of application. Many scholarships require demonstrated financial need. To establish need, you must fill out a FAFSA by March 1 at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The Dean’s Office of the College, assisted by the College Scholarship Award Committee, chooses recipients for College scholarships. Scholarship awards are administered by the UNM Scholarship Office.
