Program Evolution

In 2005, the LAESF Advisory Committee implemented several changes to enhance the quality and effectiveness of future awards. In the past, a majority of the scholarships were one-time awards. Beginning in 2008, all awards became four-year scholarships, which better meets the needs of students in our region.

In 2007, the committee revised the selections process. After reviewing a wealth of data showing that standardized test scores correlate strongly with household income, they adopted a new policy to increase points awarded to applicants’ evaluations based upon financial background. The new selections process ensures a more equitable distribution of scholarship funds across the diverse applicant pool. LAESF is a merit-based scholarship but acknowledges the fact that overcoming financial hardship while excelling academically is highly meritorious.

The committee approved the creation of the Regional College/Returning Student Scholarship fund in 2011 to award scholarships to motivated students returning to a formal education after a hiatus for other pursuits. These candidates may have left formal education for business, the military, or other reasons, possibly for an extended period, and now seek to expand their opportunities with a certificate or a two-year degree through a program in the regional area.

In 2014, the Northern New Mexco Tribal Business Scholaship was created to support Native stiudents and their Tribe or Pueblo community's need for qualified business professionals.
