The HWC Scholarship Program For Hispanic Women

The HWC Scholarship Program offers academic scholarships and mentorship to Hispanic women who are residents of New Mexico. It is available to continuing college students who are attending college either as traditional or non-traditional students.

Applicants must be females of Hispanic descent, residents of New Mexico, and formally accepted or currently enrolled in either the University of New Mexico (UNM) or Central New Mexico Community College (CNM).

Applicants may attend college on a part-time or full-time basis. Studnets who have already completed 30+ hours of college work toward a 4-year degree or who are pursuing an advanced degree or certification at UNM or CNM will receive preference.

To apply, candidates must complete an online application and include a grade transcript, resume, cover letter, and two letters of recommendation.

The scholarship is sponsored by The New Mexico Hispanic Women’s Council, a non-profit, intergenerational organization founded in 1988 to promote, support, and create opportunities for Hispanic women.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in JULY of each year, and the award amount is usually $20,000.
