NMJC Scholarship Deadlines Nearing
6/13/2009 11:27:49 p.m. - Hobbs, NM. Students who want to attend New Mexico Junior College in the fall still have time to apply for scholarships, but the deadline is fast approaching.
A number of scholarships are still available through the NMJC Foundation. According to Tina Kunko, Accountant/Controller of the NMJC Foundation, typical Foundation scholarships range from $250-$500 per semester, but if students are selected to receive a scholarship in the fall, it is renewed for the spring semester as well. According to Kunko, some scholarships have both residency and grade point average restrictions. In addition, scholarship amounts vary and depend on the number of applications received for financial aid and the amount of funds available. “The downturn in the economy means there are fewer scholarships available, but there are some still available,” she said. “Its definitely worth applying for.”
