SILVER CITY, N.M. (AP) – Anonymous donors are pledging more than $130,000 to the Western New Mexico University Foundation to establish scholarships for Native American students.
The Silver City Sun-News reports a couple recently established an endowment and created an immediate use fund to supplement its growth.
Endowed scholarships will be created with gifts that total a minimum of $15,000.
WNMU Foundation Director Jodi Edens-Crocke says the couple cares about Native American cultures and indigenous students.
Officials say Western New Mexico University serves more than 100 Native American students each semester.
