New Mexico Lottery/ State Aid
Since 1996, the New Mexico Lottery has helped more than 97,000 students from across the state attend New Mexico public colleges, universities and technical colleges with the help of a Legislative Lottery Scholarship.
Part of every dollar spent on Lottery tickets benefits New Mexico’s future. It opens the door to new generations of New Mexicans to obtain a college education that otherwise might not have been possible. And that makes New Mexico a smarter, better place.
