A&S Scholarship Program

Thanks to the generosity of many donors and the proceeds earned through differential tuition, the UNM College of Arts and Sciences (A&S) offers a variety of scholarships to Main Campus students who have a declared first or second major in an A&S academic program. Over 50 of these scholarships are proudly awarded every year, and each has a minimum value of $1,000.

The eligibility requirements associated with each scholarship are detailed below.

Students who are eligible to receive an A&S undergraduate scholarship should go to the bottom of this page for instructions on how to apply. The application deadline for A&S Academic Scholarships is March 6, 2023. The application deadline for A&S Summer Scholarships will be determined at a later date.

Students should also check out the funding opportunities offered by the A&S Center for Academic Success and the A&S Office of Research.
