Scholarships

Scholarships are awarded by Enrollment Services, the ENMU Foundation and various academic departments. The Office of Financial Aid administers these funds after they have been awarded. You can also receive scholarships from outside sources. Check the scholarship bulletin board located outside room 107 in the SAS building for postings on available scholarships.

Native American Tribal Scholarship

Students should request an application from their respective tribe and bring their Financial Need Analysis form (FNA) to the Office of Student Financial Aid. In order to correctly complete FNA and return it to the tribe, the student's Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and ENMU financial aid file must be complete. Upon review of the Financial Needs Analysis Form, the Tribe may offer the student funding. All tribal funds should be sent to the Office of Student Aid for disbursement.

There are numerous scholarships awarded by agencies, business, and individuals outside of ENMU. We encourage students to apply for scholarships that are offered in their local communities. We further encourage students to apply for scholarships that are awarded through major corporations and foundations. Below we have included links to some of the most frequently awarded outside donor scholarships that ENMU students receive.
