The Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Foundation is currently accepting applications for Northern New Mexico Tribal Business Scholarships.
These one-time $1500 awards are designated to support qualified Native American students currently attending four-year undergraduate degree programs in business-related fields such as accounting, finance and business information systems from an accredited post-secondary educational institution, in or out of state. Students must be a member of a Pueblo or Tribe and reside within the seven Northern New Mexico counties of Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, Sandoval, Santa Fe or Taos.
Applications may be submitted online at www.lanlfoundation.org/scholarships by the June 15, 2019 deadline. Students may reapply yearly.
Northern New Mexico Tribal Business Scholarships are managed by the LANL Foundation and a Tribal/Laboratory advisory committee that awards the scholarships and determines the mission and goals of the program.
Scholarships are funded by contributions from Los Alamos National Laboratory employees, retirees and contractors, as well as local businesses and community members.
