Transfer Stipend

The NM AMP Transfer Scholarship is available to students transferring from a 2-year to a 4-year institution to pursue a degree in a STEM discipline. Available to community college students as they begin their first semester at a four-year institution, the scholarship provides important financial assistance of a one-time stipend of $1000 the semester of transfer, once midterm grades and full-time status have been verified.
