Born one year after New Mexico was admitted to the Union, Carl Scott called New Mexico home for 90 years. A graduate of New Mexico Military Institute, Mr. Scott served in World War II. After suffering an injury and becoming disabled, he returned to New Mexico to work as an engineer for the Civil Service.
Through his estate, he established a program to assist New Mexico residents from Quay County to continue their post-secondary education.
Applications are considered from graduating high school seniors beginning their college education, currently enrolled college students or from nontraditional students. The nontraditional student is defined as a person who is returning to school after time away, pursuing a career change or a first time adult student. In 2020, this fund provided 22 awards between $750 and $2000 for students to continue their education.
