The Board of Directors of New Mexicare Inc. will begin accepting applications for graduating high school seniors on March 19, 2019.  Applications are available and may be picked up at the SRHS counselor’s office, the hospital, or online (see Submission below).   This is a four-year scholarship valued at a maximum of $4000 for community college ($500 per semester for 8 semesters), and $6000 for university ($750 per semester for 8 semester). 

These scholarships vary from $500 to $750 per semester, for a maximum of 8 semesters. Renewals are based on a minimum cumulative 2.5 GPA in college, and continuous full-time enrollment in an approved health related field.  Students that do not submit their official grades and proof of registration each semester, do not successfully complete a minimum of 12 hours per semester, or that change their majors to a non-health related field will forfeit their scholarships. 

This is a competitive scholarship based on merit and quality, and must be earned.  Neatness, completeness, and effort do matter and will be taken into account.

For further information, contact Christina Campos or Colleen Gallegos at (575) 472-3417.
