NMASBO is continuing to support graduates who are attending NM Universities and Colleges in the fall of 2018. Scholarships for many students are the only way that they can go to college. NMASBO has made a long-term financial commitment to continue to offer multiple scholarships to graduating high school students and now college students throughout New Mexico.

This year, there were over 250 high school applications submitted and, of those, only 72 were complete and eligible for evaluation. The scholarships were divided by Region and the on-line Reviewer system was utilized for the first time for the high school scholarships,

College scholarships will be released for application in the beginning of August to all major 4- year universities within New Mexico. We will again award multiple $500 awards to existing college students in good standing within their business colleges.

If you are interested in serving on the Scholarship Review Committee, please let me know at Kimberly.stone@capitantigers.org so I can get you added to our team!

I want to thank all of our past volunteers as we couldn’t complete this job without the contribution of your time!
