Give to Scholarships

Students in Northern New Mexico have big dreams for meaningful careers. However, many do not have the money to fund higher learning to make these dreams a reality. We ask for your support in providing financial assistance to these deserving high school and college students seeking undergraduate degrees and adults looking for new opportunities through a two-year degree or certification. Most donations to the Los Alamos Employees’ Scholarship Fund (LAESF) come from the generous Laboratory workforce and LANS, however anyone can contribute to our scholarships for any field of study, not just STEM.

Whether you choose to make a one-time donation or commit to a longer-term pledge, your generosity will help a student from your community build a fulfilling career and a bright future. Click on the button below and choose where your money goes. Different scholarship funds support a variety of student qualifications and career directions.
