Central New Mexico – Reentry Scholarship (Est. 2005)

The section received its charter on December 5, 1988. A small group of SWE members living and working in the area took the initiative and decided to pursue the creation of a new SWE section in central New Mexico. The section began as a subsection (serving the Albuquerque area) of the Southwest Section based in Phoenix, Arizona.

The Central New Mexico Section has two endowed SWE scholarships.

  • The SWE Central New Mexico - Pioneers Scholarship was established in 2004. This yearly scholarship (originally was $1,500) is awarded to a sophomore, junior, or senior who is a US citizen and SWE member.  Applicants must attend a university located in New Mexico: New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, New Mexico State University, University of New Mexico. Renewable for 3 years. Availability dependent upon renewal.
  • The SWE Central New Mexico - Reentry Scholarship was established in 2005.
