Academic Scholarship Programs for In-State Freshman


Eastern New Mexico University is committed to providing affordable educational solutions to students from all backgrounds. Continuing in this faith, Eastern is offering several academic scholarships to first-time freshmen which could total over $33,000 over four years of study. These New Mexico Freshman Academic Scholarships provided by ENMU can even cover more than your cost of tuition and fees.

The New Mexico Freshman Academic Scholarship is actually made up of three different scholarship awards: The Foundation Starter Scholarship (pays 100% of first semester tuition), The New Mexico Lottery Success Scholarship (pays a portion of the 2nd semester), and the Freshman Academic Scholarship (pays up to $2,800/year for those with ACT scores greater than 22).

Qualifications for Eastern Freshman Academic Scholarships

All of in-state freshman scholarship opportunities offered by Eastern New Mexico University require that applicants be New Mexico residents and have at least a 20 ACT or 940 SAT (pre Feb 2016)/1020 SAT (post March 2016). The higher your test scores, the higher your potential scholarship award will be.

To qualify for the Green and Silver Presidential Scholarship program, applicants must either have a 3.0 GPA with an ACT composite of 27 or a 3.5 GPA with an ACT composite of 25. This is one of ENMU’s most generous awards given to only 10 students each year.

Continuation of Eastern Scholarship

Many New Mexico scholarships may be renewed for consecutive semesters if scholarship continuation qualifications are met by the applicant. These continuation qualifications include GPA maintenance and credit hour accumulation.

Don’t miss these generous scholarship opportunities! To apply for these scholarship awards, submit your online application to ENMU by Aug 1st (fall) and Jan 3rd (spring).

As New Mexico’s largest regional comprehensive university, ENMU offers students more than 90 undergraduate, graduate and certificate options.
