Foundation Scholarships

The CNM Foundation is committed to the principle that no student should be denied the opportunity for an education due solely to a lack of financial resources. Yet, CNM has a higher percentage of students with financial need than any other New Mexico college. Although the college receives federal and state financial assistance, these funds do not meet CNM students' vast need for financial assistance in order to improve their lives through higher education.

Support the success of current CNM students by making a gift of any amount to an established CNM Foundation scholarship. Donations of any size may be contributed to funds still seeking full endowment.

Endowed Funds

If you’d like to create a lasting legacy with the CNM Foundation, consider a named scholarship endowment, which allows you to determine the endowment's name and criteria and provides everlasting support for CNM students. Donors of named scholarship endowments provide a minimum contribution of $20,000 payable over five years.
