UNM Financial Aid Award Package for the 2022-2023 academic year
Two scholarships of $1,000 will be awarded, one to an undergraduate and one to a graduate student. This equates to $500 for the fall 2022 semester and $500 for the spring 2023 semester. Funds must be used within the 2022-2023 academic year. So, if applicants do not take courses during one of the semesters, they will only receive the award for the semester they're enrolled in.
There is a two-time limit for applicant awards. Therefore, those who have already won the UNM Parent & Family Association twice before, will not be eligible.
