No question, college is expensive. Often times, that price tag determines if and where a student enrolls in college.

But it doesn't have to.

At Zia, we are passionate about empowering generations of Northern New Mexico Families, and we want to help you build your future. We're offering scholarships to help cover the cost of your 2021-2022 school year for high school and homeschooled graduating seniors. If you're considering higher education, let us help give you a leg up on all the expenses.


Zia Credit Union's Education Foundation was originally conceived in 1999 with the goal of raising funds to make Educational Scholarships available to our young members. Since that time, we have presented $376,750 in Merit Scholarships in the categories of Academics, Leadership, and Special Achievement.

Last year, we were very pleased to be able to contribute to the future of our youth of Northern New Mexico by providing over $26,000 in scholarships to high school seniors. And now it's time to invite a new group of young members to apply for a Zia Credit Union Education Foundation Scholarship award!
