Below are links to organizations providing scholarships and resources for College Bound Students.
Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
Your first step in applying for financial aid is to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), regardless of your family’s financial status. Your FAFSA information is used to determine your eligibility for a broad range of federal, state, and UNM aid, including loans and work-study. We encourage you to apply electronically at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. This document is required for most scholarships so it is a first step for most students.
Fill Out the Form!
