The 2018 Scholarship Application is now available for download on our site.

To commemorate the enduring and powerful messages of love, hope and unity that characterized the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Multicultural Council annually hosts a celebration that honors the diversity of New Mexico.

An integral part of the celebration is an annual essay scholarship competition open to high school seniors across the state of New Mexico pursuing higher education who use Dr. King’s stirring words, unforgettable images and actions to express their understanding of civil rights, diversity and community pride.
