About Regents Community

regents scholarship

The Regents’ Scholars Program was established in 1989 and the first class was selected in 1991. The program is designed to attract the brightest and most talented students from the state and nation to UNM. It is the most prestigious of all scholarships awarded at the University of New Mexico, offering an academic scholarship which provides funding that covers standard tuition, books, fees, and room and board. The scholarship is renewable for eight semesters provided students meet specific renewal requirements.

Regents’ Scholars will be involved in innovative and exciting programs and opportunities. To enhance the students’ academic experiences, each new Scholar will be assigned a faculty mentor chosen from among UNM’s outstanding faculty members.
