Scholarship seekers compete for scholarships by completing a Scholar Dollar$ application. Scholar Dollar$ is open for the next academic year for new and continuing students between October 1st and March 1st. A new application must be completed each year.

When you submit a Scholar Dollar$ application you are applying for scholarships offered by New Mexico State University, the College of Arts & Sciences, and the department(s) of your major. If additional materials are needed, those details are listed on the College Scholarships page or from your department.
