Santa Fe resident Andrew Davis and his family’s foundation have announced 25 full scholarship recipients from New Mexico, part of a three-year, $11.6 million scholarship program.
All recipients would be the first in their families to earn a four-year college degree, the foundation said in a news release. The scholarships cover tuition, room, board, travel, books, incidentals and money for parents to visit each year.
The program, which provided scholarships for 29 students from New Mexico last year, was launched in 2016 by Davis, Breakthrough Santa Fe and Santa Fe Prep. “We want to bring outstanding New Mexican students to colleges and universities across the country,” Davis said in a statement.
Scholarship winners will attend one of six partner schools: University of Portland, St. Edward’s University (Austin, Texas), University of Denver, Lawrence University (Appleton, Wisc.), Southwestern University (Georgetown, Texas), and Loyola Marymount University (Los Angeles).
