MANA del Norte  News:

High school seniors in northern New Mexico are invited to apply for a $500 scholarship from MANA del Norte. The 2021-2022 scholarship application deadline is July 15, 2021.


The purpose of the MANA del Norte Scholarship is to assist Hispanic women from northern New Mexico in continuing and/or completing their post-secondary education. The philosophy of the founding members of MANA del Norte was to focus on the non-traditional student, such as single heads of household, re-entry women, and first-generation college bound. Although this criterion is not exclusive in awarding scholarships, MANA del Norte strongly endorses this philosophy. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, strength of personal statement, and letters of recommendation.
