Each year, the English Department at NMSU awards a number of scholarships and prizes to outstanding undergraduate and graduate students in our programs. 

To be eligible for these awards, you must begin by submitting an application through Scholar Dollar$. To start a scholarship application, visit the Scholar Dollar$ Online Application System.

In addition to Scholar Dollar$, the English Department has an internal application process for our awards. The Spring 2021 process for award applications will be posted early in the Spring Semester.

Please join us in congratulating our Fall 2020 award winners, along with our graduating classes of December 2020, listed here: Fall 2020 English Department Graduates and Awards.
