The Miss New Mexico Scholarship Organization, fueled solely by volunteers, is a not for profit organization dedicated to awarding scholarship dollars and empowering the young women of New Mexico to achieve their personal, professional and educational goals. Contributions from last year's donors and sponsors enabled the Miss New Mexico Pageant to make available over $25,000 in scholarships to our Miss New Mexico contestants. Many young women dream of scholarships to help pay the rising expense of a higher education.

Delegates from New Mexico have each reached the Semi-finals of Miss America seven times (in 1961, 1964, 1966, 1969, 1974, 1985, and 2009).
