The College of Business has awarded 132 students 83 scholarships totaling $155,120 for the 2012-2013 academic year.
Our College of Business Scholarship List and Criteria provides information about the financial assistance currently available to our undergraduate and graduate students.
More than half of our students work and this endowment would allow them to earn a higher wage in an environment staffed by people who are committed to excellence, ethical business values and academic success. We need to continue to provide our students with opportunities to gain practical experience through direct mentoring by a faculty or staff member. See Scholarship and Mentoring news.
Insurance Studies Program Scholarships
More than $23,000 is awarded annually to students studying insurance and risk management at NMSU. Insurance Studies Program scholarships are awarded based upon involvement in insurance, financial need, grade point average and involvement in university activities. See the Insurance and Financial Services newsletters.
New Mexico’s high school students who qualify for the New Mexico Lottery Scholarships must enroll immediately after high school graduation. Once they have completed that first semester as a freshman, they are eligible to receive the New Mexico Lottery Scholarship to complete their college education. Many of these students need a Bridge Scholarship (also called a Lottery Scholarship Opportunity) to fund their first semester of college. Without a Bridge Scholarship to cover that first semester, the student is no longer eligible for the NM lottery scholarship. Funding one semester for a student can mean a college education and a lifetime of opportunities.
The cost of books has increased dramatically and can impact a student’s decision to remain in school. The College of Business has created a Student Textbook Scholarship to assist students in purchasing books. See Textbook news.
