LANL Announces Tribal Business Scholarship Opportunities

ESPAÑOLA – Applications are now being accepted for Northern New Mexico Tribal Business Scholarships. These awards support the growing need for accountants, financial analysts, and business information system professionals within Pueblo/Tribal communities.

Scholarships in the amount of $1000 will be awarded to two qualified applicants pursuing undergraduate degrees in business-related fields from an accredited post-secondary educational institution. Students must be a member of a Pueblo or Tribe and reside within the seven Northern New Mexico counties of Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, Sandoval, Santa Fe or Taos.

Application and instructions are online at www.lanlfoundation.org/scholarships. Deadline to apply is July 20, 2015.

Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS) and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) are committed to supporting and advancing education opportunities for students from the 16 neighboring Tribal communities. A Tribal/LANL Advisory Committee determines the mission and goals of the Northern New Mexico Tribal Business Scholarship and oversees the selection process. Scholarships are administered by the LANL Foundation and funded by contributions from LANL employees, retirees, contractors, community members and LANS.
