Supporting the College of Arts & Sciences

Nearly every student who comes to UNM benefits from the rich education offered by the College of Arts & Sciences. The foundation that our social sciences, humanities, and natural sciences programs have provided for over 100 years have equipped our graduates to change their futures – and ours – for the better.

Your gift to the College of Arts & Sciences is more than a donation. As the academic heart of UNM, your generosity touches more people, opens more pathways to success, strengthens our research efforts, and improves our communities on a local, national, and global scale.


Top Priority

College of Arts and Sciences Scholarship Fund (201029)

Our students work hard to successfully combine their studies and work obligations. Yet, sometimes an unexpected expense threatens to interrupt their studies. At these critical times, a small scholarship can make a big difference to a student. This fund keeps students in school and helps them get to graduation.

When you give to this fund, you provide the most flexible scholarship funding for students. The scholarship funds can be used to support students who need just a few hundred dollars to register for their last semester, students who need a bit of help with their books this semester, and students facing an unexpected expense that might keep them from continuing their studies.
