The Don McLeod Endowment Fund has been established through the CNM Foundation to provide support to vulnerable CNM students who are enrolled in an associate or certificate degree program. It is intended to assist students with cost of required program equipment, tools, and necessary educational supplies. Applicants must be enrolled in an associate or certificate degree program, enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits, and have a 2.0 GPA or higher. Students must write a personal statement about themselves, why they have chosen their major, their educational goals, and how their education at CNM will help them. Students need to request a letter of recommendation from an Achievement Coach.
