NMMI has announced the signing of New Mexico House Bill 68 by Governor Susana Martinez effective beginning in the 2018-2019 school year.
The Luciano “Lucky” Varela Opportunity Scholarship is intended to increase the number of New Mexico high school students attending the New Mexico Military Institute who meet need-based requirements
and who might not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in a military education and environment.
Major General Grizzle, President and Superintendent said, “The significance of this scholarship is
the Opportunity Scholarship is not a fixed value and it is in addition to other scholarship opportunities.
We see qualified students who are otherwise accepted to attend NMMI leave from our doorsteps purely
on the fact they cannot afford to attend. This scholarship, graciously supported by the New Mexico
Legislature, HED Secretary and the Governor, will help NMMI to allow those students of financial need to
overcome their financial hurdle.”
This scholarship is awarded to New Mexico resident high school students based on need. An SSS form must be submitted to determine eligibility.
This form can be accessed at www.solutionsbysss.com – SSS for Families. Our School Code is 904220.
