“When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this – you haven’t.”

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” — Thomas A. Edison

NM Lottery Scholarship Changes

Four-year institutions

  • Students must now take 15 credit hours per semester and must maintain at least a 2.5 GPA every semester to continue to be eligible
  • If you maintain eligibility, you can receive the Lottery Scholarship for 7 semesters for 4-year institutions

Two-year institutions

  • Students must take 12 credit hours per semester and must maintain at least a 2.5 GPA every semester to continue to be eligible
  • If you maintain eligibility, you can receive the Lottery Scholarship for 3 semesters for 2-year institutions

The scholarship has been "decoupled" from tuition

This means that all students who qualify for the Lottery Scholarship will now receive "a uniform percentage of the average of in-state tuition costs charged by:

  1. Research institutions for each research institution; 
  2. Comprehensive institutions for each comprehensive institution; and
  3. Community colleges for each community college."

In other words, the Lottery Scholarship no longer automatically covers 100% of tuition.

The amount you receive will depend on the total amount of revenues available; the total amount of qualifying students, and the institute you are attending.
