New Mexico Financial & Family Law Annual Veterans Scholarship
Every day, armed service members sacrifice their own time and risk their personal well-being for the sake of upholding our country’s most important interests. Whether they are a full-time enlisted soldier, a career commissioned officer, or a part-time reservist, all are called upon at some point to put themselves on the line for America.

To do so, we pledge to dedicate $1,000 in scholarship money to veterans and their families currently attending or enrolling in higher education programs.
