A Message From Scholarship Recipients

I came to UNM two years ago thanks to the School of Law Alumni Association. Since then, and with the help of a few Distinguished Achievement Awards Dinners, back-to-school fiestas, and fairways on the UNM-South course, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many alumni myself. Your mentorship and insight have been invaluable throughout my time at school; I've always felt immensely supported. For that, I thank you and sincerely hope to pay forward your incredible generosity.

I feel incredibly fortunate to have received the Alumni/ae Association Scholarship. Thanks to the generosity of UNM Law’s alumni, I’ve been able to completely immerse myself in the law school experience. While the full impact of this scholarship won’t be realized for years to come, I can already see an immeasurable benefit to my legal career. I hope to pay it forward someday so that more students will be able to make their professional decisions based on their dreams and not their finances.

I was born and raised in Albuquerque and had my sights set on going to UNM School of Law for years. When I found out I was not only accepted to the school but also awarded this incredible scholarship, I felt so honored and welcomed. I am a first-generation law student who is passionate about public interest law. Knowing that my debts after law school will now be so much smaller, I feel a huge weight off my shoulders. After graduation, I know I will have more freedom to choose a career that will align with my values while still being able to support myself and my family. This is all thanks to the Alumni Association and their incredible generosity. Thank you for making me feel a part of this community
