Local Students Reap Scholarship Rewards

August 15, 1999

ALBUQUERQUE –The Anderson Schools of Management at The University of New Mexico are giving more scholarship awards this year than ever before – and a local student is reaping the benefits.

Gerard Curley of Gallup was awarded the Leonard Gregory and Charlotte Meeting Phillips Endowed Scholarship.

“We have been working to build our scholarship resources, because we know that this makes a real difference to so many of New Mexico’s students,” said Howard Smith, Anderson’s Dean.

This year, Anderson is awarding more than $75,000 in scholarships and fellowships to students who are seeking Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in a variety of concentrations such as Accounting, Human Resources, Management Information Systems, International Management, Marketing, Finance and Travel and Tourism. This represents nearly a 50% increase in scholarship awards over past years, according to Smith.
