The Desk and Derrick Club of Roswell has established a new scholarship to benefit students at ENMU-Roswell. The scholarship will cover tuition, fees, books and/or program expenses for students enrolled in the Welding, CDL, Safety and Auto Technology programs. Club members presented a check for $21,778.11 to ENMU-Roswell Foundation President, Steve Henderson. The Foundation will administer the scholarship funds which will begin distribution this coming fall semester. The scholarship is possible thanks to the New Mexico Energy Dinner sponsored by the Roswell Geological Society, Desk and Derrick Club of Roswell, and the New Mexico Landman’s Association.

Scholarship applicants must be U.S. citizens and residents of New Mexico, with preference given to Chaves County residents. Applicants can be either new or continuing students and they can reapply for the scholarship as long as they remain in good standing with ENMU-Roswell. The number of scholarship recipients and scholarship amounts per year will be  determined by the Program Director. The GPA and financial need of eligible students is at the discretion of the Program Director and the Financial Aid office.

Students interested in the scholarship can pick up an application in the ENMU-Roswell Financial Aid office.  For more information, contact Craig Collins, Foundation Coordinator,  575-624-7304.
