Every year thousands of dollars’ worth of scholarships is given out to deserving ENMU students. For example the ENMU Foundation alone awards over $400,000 in scholarships each year. There are a variety of reasons a scholarship is awarded including: academic achievement, financial need, leadership positions, campus/community activities, and work experience. As each scholarship has different criteria, you need to read through the eligibility requirements before you apply to make sure you meet them. The Financial Aid Office can provide more information on ENMU scholarships and answer any questions. Here are a couple of scholarship opportunities.
- Boundless Opportunity Scholarship
Each year, motivated non-traditional students from undergraduate degree and certificate programs are awarded the Daniel’s Fund Boundless Opportunity Scholarship (BOS). The Daniels Fund is a legacy of cable television pioneer, Bill Daniels, and scholarships are open to students at colleges and universities in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. Criteria for application include: Adult learners; GED recipients; Former foster care youth; Former juvenile justice youth; Returning military; Individuals pursuing EMT/paramedic training; and Individuals pursuing early childhood education (ECE) certification.
- Outside Donor Scholarships
You will find there are also various scholarships available from outside businesses, agencies and individuals as well as through major corporations and foundations. ENMU’s website provides links to some of the most commonly awarded scholarships received by students. The university also encourages students to explore scholarship options that may be available in your own community.
- Native American Tribal Scholarship
To receive a Native American Tribal Scholarship, students need to request an application from their respective tribe. Students then need to bring that application and their Financial Need Analysis form (FNA) to the Office of Student Financial Aid. Please see ENMU’s website for further details on how to apply and links to information you may need.
