NMIADA Scholarship Program


"Upon the subject of education, not presuming to dictate any plan or system respecting it, I can only say that I view it as the most important subject which we, as a people, can be engaged in."

-Abraham Lincoln

The NMIADA Scholarship Program: Dealers Supporting Dealers.

The NMIADA Scholarship program was started in 2017 as a way for its dealer members to directly support their dealer community. Members contribute by renewing their membership with a portion of their dues going to support the Scholarship Program, and by their purchases at the NMIADA eStore. The NMIADA also accepts donations from dealers and sponsor members.

As of 2019 the NMIADA has given $40,000 to dependents of members!


How does it work?

Eligible applicants must meet all the requirements and turn in their applications by September, 30th of 2023 to be considered. Scholarships winners are chosen by NMIADA board members and staff.  Successful applicants will be announced at the 2023 NMIADA Awards Ceremony Dinner at the Isleta Resort. Wednesday, November 6th, 2024.
