The Mexican Consulate in Albuquerque recently donated $10,000 to the CNM Foundation to establish scholarship opportunities for students who were born in Mexico or have dual citizenship in Mexico and the U.S. 

"The scholarships will help these students pay for things like tuition, registration and books," said Anna Sanchez, director of development for the CNM Foundation. "We know this scholarship money will go fast, so we hope to apply for the grant again next year and continue the partnership."

Qualified scholarship recipients will be eligible to receive a $500 scholarship. The Mexican Consulate established the scholarship to provide more higher education opportunities for Mexican immigrants and dual citizens.

CNM will track student performance to measure the success of the scholarship program.

"We hope to see these students continue their education and graduate," Sanchez said.
