Greyhound Promise Scholarship

 Greyhound Promise Banner

The ENMU Greyhound Promise scholarship provides a unique financial opportunity for undergraduate students who wish to help reduce the number of teacher vacancies by completing ENMU's Teacher Education Program.


If qualified, you will be offered an amount which may pay up to full-time resident (in-state) undergraduate tuition and mandatory student fees each semester. If you are an in-state student, you may choose to accept this award in lieu of the ENMU Greyhound Starter or New Mexico Lottery Success Scholarship but you can only receive one state-funded award each semester (Greyhound Promise OR Lottery scholarship).

Students are responsible for paying any additional educational expenses not covered by scholarship funding. Awards are subject to revision at any time due to changes in policy, law, regulations, and additional resources, calculation or funding levels. This scholarship is renewable based upon legislative funding.
