Jeremiah Wright Endowed Scholarship

This scholarship was created to honor and memorialize New Mexico Tech student Jeremiah Wright of Raton, New Mexico. He was tragically killed in a two-car accident on Sept. 28, 2002. Jeremiah Wright, a mechanical engineering major, was, in the words of his faculty advisor, "a student to emulate." Jeremiah was regarded throughout the campus as a soft-spoken, articulate, deep-thinking gentleman who was a meticulous, diligent engineer. He was also captain of the rugby team at the time of his death.

Applicants for the Jeremiah Wright Memorial Scholarship should be undergraduate students in good standing and who have graduated from a high school located in Colfax County, New Mexico. The recipient of the Jeremiah Wright Memorial Scholarship will continue to receive monies from this endowment until graduation, as long as funds remain available and the recipient remains in good academic standing. If there are no qualified students who graduated from this area in any one year, the monies will be carried over and used in subsequent years to attract students from this area.
