External Scholarships

The BA/MD Scholarship is a "Last Dollar" Scholarship and fills the gap between all scholarship funding the BA/MD student receives from other sources and the basic educational cost per academic semester/year.  All scholarship funding BA/MD students are awarded must contribute to their own basic educational cost per academic semester/year and may not be "saved" or "reserved" for other costs (such as computer, parking pass, NSO fees, savings medical school, etc.).  The BA/MD scholarship program cannot fully fund all undergraduate BA/MD students; all scholarships awarded directly to a student’s UNM account will be counted toward the BA/MD scholarship formula calculations, regardless of reason.
