The Los Alamos Employees’ Scholarship Fund (LAESF) offers the Regional College/Returning Student Scholarship for students accepted into or already studying for a certification or associate degree at a not-for-profit accredited community college. The scholarship’s target awardees are “motivated students returning to a formal education after a hiatus for other pursuits.”
Applicants must be permanent residents of Northern New Mexico and live in Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, Sandoval, Santa Fe or Taos County and they need to have a high school diploma or GED. Grants are for $1,000 and students can reapply during their program, so long as they remain in good academic standing. The next application cycle is due November 28, 2017.
