LANL Scholars Program 

We want every scholarship recipient to thrive during their academic years and successfully transition to rewarding careers. The LANL Scholars Program is designed to offer support and guidance and assist you with establishing your professional network. We also aim to provide opportunities for LANL Scholar alumni to give back as mentors, advisors and donors. 

On Campus

LANL Scholars attending the University of New Mexico and New Mexico State University have access to a campus-based program for LANL Scholars that provides resources and support for first year and transfer students. This program also seeks to build community among all LANL Scholars on campus through social events, workshops, and service opportunities.

Mentorship Opportunities

The LANL Scholars Professional Mentorship Program matches students with a mentor who has significant experience in their field of interest. Mentors are available to answer questions, offer advice and help students make valuable connections within the community or a profession—things that help students advance in their studies, careers and life. It’s not unusual to have many mentors along one’s path and later to become a mentor yourself.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, participating as a mentee, or have questions about the program, please contact Silvia Aguirre, Scholarship Program Coordinator, at

Internship Opportunities

LANL Scholars have the opportunity to work as paid summer interns at Los Alamos National Laboratory. The LAESF Advisory Committee and the Laboratory make every effort to match students with a mentor in their field of interest. However, due to the limited number of available positions, not every applicant may be placed, and some students may initially work in areas not closely aligned with their career goals.
