2022 Scholarship Recipients

Congratulations to our 2022 Scholarship Recipients!

 

4-Year Undergraduate Scholarships

In 2022, 102 Northern New Mexico students pursuing bachelor's degrees are receiving 111 scholarships worth $783,000!

Since 1999, more than 2000 Northern New Mexico students have been awarded scholarships totaling over $10 million! These scholarships would not be possible without the generous support from the LANL workforce. In 2021, LANL employees donated nearly $375,000 to the Los Alamos Employees’ Scholarship Fund, and Triad National Security contributed $172,500 in scholarship funding.

Scholarships are also made possible by community members who have entrusted the LANL Foundation and the LAESF Advisory Committee to administer their named and endowed scholarship funds.
