About NASP

The Native American Scholarship Program (NASP) provides financial assistance to support post-secondary education for Native American students. New Mexico Gas Company’s scholarship supports Native American students in New Mexico who demonstrate a desire to engage in their future through continuing education.

The program assists students in pursuit of an associate, bachelor’s, or master’s degree, certification from a trade school or specialized technical training associated with a license or certificate. The allowance for trade school and technical training assistance sets this program apart from more traditional scholarship programs. We recognize that in today’s workforce, there is a need for trade school and technically trained personnel as well as those with conventional degrees.

Twenty initial or renewal scholarships of $2,000 each are awarded annually. Applications for this year’s scholarships will be accepted beginning April 3, 2023. The application deadline is May 5, 2023. All applicants will be notified of the award decisions by the end of June. Presentation of the awards will be made by the NASP committee at a date to be determined.
