HU Foundation Scholarships

The funding for all endowed scholarships is dependent upon the general appreciation of the fund and the interest that the original contribution earns annually. There might be years some scholarships will not be given until the economy improves and interest accumulates sufficiently to fund the scholarship. Scholarship award amounts may also vary as the donor builds the endowment or chooses to change the award.

Scholarship recipients of endowed or other scholarships are responsible for writing to the donor of the scholarship, representatives of the donors, or to the Highlands Foundation Board of Directors to express their appreciation for these scholarship awards. Address and contact names are available at the Financial Aid Office and the Office of Development.



For more information, please contact the NMHU Financial Aid office at or 505-454-3318.  Scholarships are available for entering freshmen, upperclassmen, transfer, international, and graduate students.
