College of Education Scholarships & Awards

In addition to the NMSU scholarships which are automatically awarded based on your admissions application (see NMSU Financial Aid’s Scholarship page), the College of Education offers student scholarships to new and existing students who are enrolled in a program through our college.

Scholarships help students defray some of the costs associated in attending the university and are made possible by alumni and friends of the college. Eligibility and award amounts vary. Scholarships are available for undergraduate and graduate students. See the list below for information on scholarships offered through the college.

A FAFSA application can also be submitted to NMSU for additional financial support  in the form of grants, loans and work-study. Visit University Financial Aid and Scholarship Services for more information.
