Legislation to increase need-based scholarships passes the Senate Education Committee unanimously

NM SB81 - Increase Certain Scholarship Amounts (sponsored by Sen. Gay Kernan) passed the Senate Education Committee unanimously. This bill would begin to replenish New Mexico’s College Affordability Endowment Fund, helping to ensure that older, nontraditional and tribal students receive modest tuition relief when pursuing a degree or certificate program.
