High School Scholarships

NMASBO awards six $1,500 scholarships (a minimum of one from each region) to deserving New Mexico high school seniors across the state every year. All the regional applicants must demonstrate to the committee financial need and purpose for the scholarship.

In 2021, the Scholarship Committee will select one applicant from the scholarship pool to receive the 11th Annual Joni Heinsohn Memorial Scholarship for $2,500. This applicant must meet the same criteria in the guidelines and application. The applicant who demonstrates to the committee the most need and purpose for the memorial scholarship will be selected.

The NMASBO Board established an Annual Memorial Scholarship in Joni Heinsohn’s name. Our success as an association would have never been achieved without her contributions and hard work. The annual recipient of this scholarship shall be a reflection of Joni’s overall commitment to always achieving excellence in everything she did.

Congratulations to Sebastian Jimenez from Tatum High School for receiving the 10th Annual Joni Heinsohn Memorial Scholarship in 2020!
