GPSA Summer Scholarship Fund
In Summer 2013, 2,208 graduate and professional students took credit courses. This past summer, 2,042 did the same. This added semester helps students to matriculate on time, focus on a research project, and complete their seminal works. For students with families, being able to spread their coursework over three semesters a year instead of two is a way to take the stress out of juggling responsibilities.
It is our hope to assist similar students through an award to cover tuition cost in summers to come with the GPSA Summer Scholarship. We have already begun fundraising with our “Food for Thought” event, in which local food trucks come to UNM and donate a percentage of their proceeds directly to the Fund. To reach the number of students we’re aiming for though, we need your help!
