The New Mexico Women’s Bar Association provides bar preparation scholarships to recently or soon-to-be graduated law school students who are registered to take the New Mexico bar exam in July 2024.


To apply, applications should provide their contact information, resume, and a one to two-page letter explaining:

(1) your financial need;

(2) your law school academic record (no need to provide a transcript; describe your academic record, including challenges and successes); and

(3) your plans after you pass the bar exam, and how your career plans will be connected to or will affect New Mexico. 

The Board of the NMWBA will review applications and choose the recipients based on financial need, your story and connection to New Mexico, and your academic record. The recipients will be notified shortly after selection and receive a check of no less than $1,000 to use as they see fit as they prepare for the bar exam. The total number and the amount of scholarships to be awarded in 2024 has not been set, and the Board has discretion with respect to both the number of scholarships to be awarded and the amount of each scholarship.  


Applicant’s letter, resume, and contact information should be emailed to the NMWBA no later than Friday, May 31 2024.
