Private Scholarship Opportunities

New Mexico State University students often qualify for private or external scholarships based on various criteria, including need, academic performance, interests, and background. Please keep in mind, these awards are developed and funded by public and private organizations, and not the university. 

Always be cautious when applying for any external scholarships by following these simple tips:

  • Never provide personal financial or bank information.
  • Do not pay for information, to apply for the scholarship, or to receive the scholarship. You should never have to give money to apply for or receive a scholarship.
  • Use precaution on websites with consistent pop-ups and advertisements
  • Set up anti-virus software or ad-blocker browsers to ensure online browsing security

Financial Aid does review all scholarships before posting, but still encourages for students to always be cautious with online scholarship applications.
