Lab breaks scholarship fundraising mark

-A A +A

This year’s Los Alamos National Laboratory Employees’ Scholarship Fund broke past fundraising records, raising a total of $563,827.
 Of that, 601 LANL employees, visiting scientists and friends of the lab contributed $313,000. Los Alamos National Security, LLC provided a $250,000 match.
Nan Sauer, associate director for Chemistry, Life and Earth Science at the lab and chair of the campaign, said this exceeded the Scholarship Advisory Committees’ goal of $300,000 from employees.
 Laboratory employees contributed $273,300 to the campaign last year.
Scholarship awards went to 73 students in a seven-county region. Winners received their checks, ranging from $20,000 to $1,000 at a recent ceremony at the LANL Foundation office courtyard in Española.
Rich Marquez, executive director of the lab encouraged students to “think big and be what you want to be.”
“There is no reason for us to recruit outside of Northern New Mexico; you are the seedbed for the lab’s future, and seeing you reminds me this country has a great future and you are it,” he said.
Now, in its 15th year, the scholarship program has awarded more than $3.7 million to students in the Northern New Mexico counties it serves.
