Scholarships & Financial Aid

The College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences is proud to award scholarships totaling over $400,000 annually. Scholarships are available to full-time graduate, undergraduate and prospective students by completing the NMSU Scholar Dollar$ Application.

These scholarships are made possible because our donors have decided to invest in you, the College's future, and the industry. It is this generosity that strengthens the student foundation and allows our College to provide an excellent education.
