Student Aid Opportunities

The Albuquerque Community Foundation has 23 separate scholarship and student aid programs to help New Mexico residents attain their educational goals.

Scholarships for New Mexico High School Students

Scholarships for New Mexico College Students

The Albuquerque Community Foundation has moved to a Common Application process, making your application process easier and more efficient. Once you create an account and fill out the Common Application, you will be provided with supplemental questions per program.

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, contact Vanessa Gonzalez , Community Impact Program Officer or call 505.883.6240


All financial and other nonpublic information contained in student aid applications is maintained by Albuquerque Community Foundation in a confidential manner at all times.
