Jonathan Gabriel Baca Memorial Endowed Scholarship

This endowed scholarship was lovingly created to celebrate and honor the life of Jonathan Gabriel Baca. Established by Jonathan’s family and friends, this scholarship supports awards for undergraduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences, with preference given to students who work for the Daily Lobo.

Jonathan was a UNM Alumni and a reporter for the Daily Lobo, winning awards and recognition for several of his stories; he also produced and hosted a podcast for the Daily Lobo, called “Wolf Tracks”. Jonathan’s passion for journalism continued after his time at UNM, when he established a successful freelance editing service. Jonathan had a special talent for interviewing people, really hearing them, and gently probing for the deep story. His wit, talent, intelligence, and tender heart are sorely missed.
