ENMU Foundation Scholarships

The ENMU Foundation staff is busy building a new online scholarship application process to make it easier for you to apply for our scholarships. The new online platform offers a full-featured software for advertising scholarships, matching applicants, reviewing, reporting and awarding funds online. We will no longer accept paper applications once this new process is rolled out in December 2017.

We are currently in the testing phase of the new online scholarship platform and we appreciate your patience as our work is completed to bring you best online application process possible!

The new online scholarship platform is scheduled to be online by Dec. 1, 2017. Be sure to check back again for updates as this date approaches.
