Education with the eagle

2020 Scholarship Program


Scholarships for the 2020 - 2021 school year will be available in 2020.



Don't let the media fool you, school is cool. It's even cooler when you get free money towards tuition, books, and living expenses. We know that school isn’t cheap, but we also know that higher education is one of the ways we’re going to build a better future for our state. That’s why we have created a scholarship program to give New Mexico students the opportunity to open the door to more opportunities. Apply for one of our three available scholarships, each valued at $2,000.

Students may apply for more than one scholarship, but can only be awarded one scholarship per year. To be eligible, students must have plans to enroll in the fall of 2019 in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university, or  in a full-time trade/vocational school. Full-time undergraduate students already enrolled at an accredited two- or four-year college or university, or trade/vocational school are also eligible. Students must agree to the use of their name and photograph for publication by U.S. Eagle relating to this program. Applicants must be members, or relative of a current member at U.S. Eagle. Employees, volunteers, and immediate family members of employees at U.S. Eagle are not eligible.
