What You Should Know
Scholarships are designed to reward, encourage and assist students in their pursuit of academic excellence and leadership roles.
Scholarships are not the only way to pay for college, though. Check with the Financial Aid office for more information on student loans, grants and other ways of paying for school.
Each college awards scholarships to qualified students demonstrating academic excellence. Most scholarship recipients must be full-time students. Many scholarships have been set up through endowments or trusts by benefactors of the College. These scholarships are awarded based on the criteria set by the donors. The amounts of these scholarships are determined by the amount of interest earned on the donation, which may change from year to year.
Scholarships are awarded for the academic year. This means that the total amount is divided between the fall and spring semesters. If a student graduates in December, only the fall portion will be awarded.
Many scholarships are renewable. To be eligible to receive a scholarship again, you must reapply each year.
All scholarship recipients who receive an ENMU-Ruidoso Foundation scholarship must adhere to the following:
- Send a letter to thank the donors of the scholarship
- Attend the annual awards assembly
Failure to comply will result in the loss of the scholarship.
