The Los Alamos Employees’ Scholarship Fund encourages Los Alamos National Laboratory employees, retirees, and subcontract personnel to donate to a fund that awards college scholarships to Northern New Mexico students. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of grade point average, test scores, diversity, financial need, academic rigor, leadership, and community involvement.
The Los Alamos Employees’ Scholarship Fund program began in 1998 and is administered by the Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation. Since its inception, more than 580 scholarships have been awarded, and Laboratory employees have donated more than $2 million to the fund.
Sixty-seven New Mexico students received scholarships this past year.
Taos High School senior Majdolene Khweis received this year’s platinum scholarship, which provides $7,500 in financial assistance annually for four years. She will attend MIT in the fall.
