The 2022 First American Bank scholarship application is now closed.

The FAB scholarship was established in 2012 to help graduating seniors from Chaparral High School (Chaparral, N.M.) realize their educational goals and dreams. The mission of the scholarship is to increase student graduation rates, establish partnerships with higher education institutions, and give students and families the ability to afford a college education.

The scholarship allows eligible Chaparral High School students to attend college or university and have a significant portion of their education paid for through this fund, the New Mexico Lottery scholarships and other financial aid. In 2022, 20 recipients were selected for awards up to $5,000/semester for four years of undergraduate school. Scholarships are need-based and are applied after other financial aid has been awarded.

Congratulations to the following Chaparral High School graduates who are the 2022 scholarship recipients: Dafne Arellano-Jurado, Destiny Camacho, Jonathan Carbajal, Priscilla Cardenas, Melanie Cervantes, Laura Coheto, Melanie Enriquez, Yadira Estrada, Angelica Hernandez, Jeanny Hernandez, Alonzo Hubert, Mairani Jimenez, Jaylenn Minjarez, Maria Del Sol Nunez-Pena, Kimberly Ochoa, Michelle Reyes, Karen Suarez, Cassandra Torres, Ericka Torres, and Marissa Torres.
