New Mexico College Scholarships

REMEMBER: Any University or College that you want to apply to will have their own scholarships, so the first step is to look at your prospective schools' financial aid pages and find out about their available scholarships and financial aid package. Also remember that need-based aid comes from the colleges and universities where you want to go, not from the government. It is up to the schools to give aid to students. Once you have been accepted SPEAK TO THE FINANCIAL AID DEPARTMENT!!! This is where you can plan your college finances.
