Nine college-bound high school students from northern New Mexico have been selected for scholarships and an achievement award administered by the J. Robert Oppenheimer Memorial Committee.
The students are from Los Alamos, Pojoaque Valley and Santa Fe high schools.
The JROMC has awarded 136 scholarships and other awards totaling $268,000 since the program begun in 1984.
The philanthropic organization’s scholarship program is supported by several endowments, numerous small, individual donations and major contributions from the Los Alamos National Bank.
“We continue to honor Robert Oppenheimer’s legacy by supporting students of great achievement and even greater promise,” said Garrett Kenyon, JROMC chairperson. “Oppenheimer recognized the value of learning about the world as a means of contributing to it, and we are pleased to support these exceptional young adults as they continue their educational journey.”
The scholarship program began at Los Alamos High School and in 1998 expanded to Pojoaque and then to Santa Fe and Capital high schools. Scholarships are in the amount of $2,500.
