It was a bitterly cold and windy December morning at the Bernardo Waterfowl Management Area in central New Mexico.

NMSU Women?s Club scholarship due March 1

The NMSU Women?s Club is committed to supporting returning female undergraduate students in attaining their educational goals. The Club?s Scholarship Committee annually recommends one or two candidates for the NMSU Women?s Club scholarship. Each candidate is awarded a $500 scholarship and invited to attend the Club?s spring luncheon.

The NMSU Women?s Club Scholarships are open to any female NMSU undergraduate student at the main campus or branch campuses who is returning to school after a break in her education (either after high school or after starting college). These scholarships have been set up specifically for returning students because students immediately out of high school have other opportunities, such as the lottery scholarship, available to them. Candidates must have completed at least 45 credit hours and have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher.

To apply, download a copy of the 2016-2017 NMSU Women?s Club Scholarship Award application by clicking the link below. Directions for completing and where to submit are included in the application https://womensclub.nmsu.edu/scholarships/. The deadline to apply is March 1.

For more information, contact the NMSU Women?s Club President, Susan DeMar, at sdemar@nmsu.edu or 575-646-3509.
