The Albuquerque Community Foundation has 18 separate scholarship and student aid programs to help New Mexico residents attain their educational goals.
Each scholarship program was established by a donor with individual interests and priority areas. They represent the broad diversity of the generous individuals who care about education and believe it is the best way to give back to future generations. For this reason, requirements vary for each program. Please read about each program carefully prior to applying and if you have further questions, visit or FAQ page or send us an email.
Please note in the beginning of Fall 2014, the Legislative Lottery Scholarship requirements include the new minimum for number of credit hours - 15 NEW credit hours with repeating classes do not count.
All financial and other nonpublic information contained in student aid applications is maintained by Albuquerque Community Foundation in a confidential manner at all times.
