TRIO New Mexico Pre-Collegiate
This year, TRIO New Mexico had a great pool of applicants for the pre-collegiate scholarship competitions. The applications were tailored to meet the needs of our diverse student populations, and our non-traditional students were just as competitive as our high school students. There were 9 applicants for the EOC & VUB competition and 11 applicants for ETS & UB competition. The scholarship committee worked diligently to get the scholarships read and scored.
The scholarship committee is happy to announce that they awarded 3 scholarship to students from the EOC & VUB competition and 3 scholarships to students from the ETS & UB competition.
Congratulations to the following applicants:
1. Berenise Rivera, NMT UBMS (100%) - $350 Javier Alcantar Scholarship
2. David Amendariz, UNM UB (93.1%) - $250 TRIO NM Scholarship
3. Eric Olaguir, UNM UB (87.5%) -$250 TRIO NM Scholarship
