SpringBoard! Scholarship Fund

Impacting lives of women in southern New Mexico by providing educational opportunities through scholarships.

OUR IMPACT: In its twenty years, SpringBoard! has provided assistance to more than 100 women in Southern New Mexico, through SpringBoard! and Over the Rainbow scholarships. Recipient fields of study have been awarded through a vast number of backgrounds including nursing, criminal justice, radiology technology, computer science, dental hygiene, and so many more.

OUR GOALS: By investing in the SpringBoard! Scholarship fund at the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico, you are investing in the dreams of deserving women in our community by making an impact now and for generations to come. Our goal is to raise funds and increase the number of need-based scholarships and grants awarded to women for community college education and vocational training. To provide financial support for GED applicants; build an endowment that will support initiatives for women; and build networks of women in leadership dedicated to making a difference for women in southern New Mexico.

The hours committed to SpringBoard! are provided in-house by women volunteer SpringBoard! Committee members. This ensures that we stand by our goals and mission by continuing the women supporting women initiative. In an effort to share their mission, the SpringBoard! Committee can also help administer private scholarships, such as the Over the Rainbow scholarship.

Your continuous support and generosity is met with an unprecedented need to support these young women in their endeavors as they create an impact on our society.
