The UNM Foundation: Our Stories of Impact

Presidential Scholarship Program

Many of New Mexico’s highest achieving and most committed high school graduates attend UNM each year thanks to their Presidential Scholarship. These scholars earned the right to be called Presidential Scholars through their academic performance and community service. They enrich New Mexico and exemplify student success as Lobos on the UNM campus throughout their college careers and long after they graduate. With an annual gift of $2,600, you will create your very own named Presidential Scholarship. This award is currently valued at over $13,000 with the help of our leveraged funds, and it covers a Scholar’s tuition, fees, books and more. As a Sponsor, you are matched with a Presidential Scholar, attend special invitation-only events, and have an opportunity to make a personal connection with the student whose life you are helping to change. Alternately, you may make a gift of any size to the UNM Presidential Scholarship Program and “Share a Scholar” with other generous donors. These gifts make a difference by providing many additional Presidential Scholarships. For giving in perpetuity, an investment of $75,000 or more establishes an endowed Presidential Scholarship, which can bear the donor’s name, or the name of a living or deceased loved one, colleague, or mentor. You may create an endowment with a one-time gift or pay over three years or less. For more information, please contact Presidential Scholarship Program Director Terry Mulert at Terry.Mulert@ unmfund.org or (505) 313-7679.
