Building a Better Albuquerque Scholarship

The Building a Better Albuquerque Scholarship fund provides financial assistance to teens and young adults living in and around the communities we serve. This scholarship can be applied to any type of post-secondary education, including community college and trade school. The one-time scholarship award is $500 to $1000.

The Greater Albuquerque Housing Partnership awarded two scholarships in 2019. 

Breanne Haskins and Alicia Romero were both volunteers with the STEM Scout program for two years. Their participation opened the possibility for a different future for each of the children, proof that they could achieve a future in the STEM fields.
