Words To The Wise:

You must attend college during the fall semester of 2020-2021 to be eligible for the New Mexico Lottery Scholarship: Fall semester is your qualifying semester. If you decide to attend college outside of New Mexico, you automatically lose the New Mexico Lottery Scholarship. However, moving out of state will NOT affect your eligibility for the Pell Grant.

College and Scholarship Applications

Seniors should be filling out applications for admission. Most colleges and universities can be found online by using the acronym for their college/university. The following website is also very helpful:www.collegescolleges.com.

FAFSA

Most colleges and universities want students to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to see if the students qualify for financial aid. The FAFSA application process opened on October 1, 2019. Once all federal funds have been distributed, even if you qualify, you will not be able to receive funds. In any event, you must complete the FAFSA, even though you do not qualify for federal funds. The financial information on the FAFSA is used for other reasons as well such as student loans, scholarships, grants, etc. Please do not make the mistake of thinking that you can just skip that step.
