FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is it better to email my application in, or send it via US Mail?
Either is acceptable, however email is much preferred.
How should I save my electronic app to be emailed in?
Please save all of your application components as “LAST NAME_FIRST NAME_DOC TITLE”. For example:
Doe_John_APP, Doe_John_Transcripts, etc
Should my letter of reference be sent separately or with my application?
References letters are usually best sent separately by your reference. Either email or US Mail is acceptable, though email is much preferred when possible. We encourage you to follow up and confirm that your reference did indeed submit their letter of reference by the due date.
Do my transcripts need to be official? Also, what if it has “copy” printed across it when I scan it?
Unofficial transcripts are just fine; it is also fine when “copy” is printed across it when scanned.
I am having trouble with formatting of the cover page. What should I do?
Do the best you can…you can hand write (VERY NEATLY!) the cover page if needed, or you can type it out on a separate page. All answers to the narrative application questions MUST be typed.
I have received a scholarship in the past. May I reapply?
You are eligible to receive a Santa Fe PFLAG (Northern NM) scholarship a total of TWO times. So if you have received it only once, yes, you may reapply. After you have received two scholarships, you are no longer eligible to apply.
Am I eligible for the scholarship if I don’t live in Santa Fe?
Yes, you are eligible for the scholarship as long as you are a resident of New Mexico. If you are studying at a university outside of NM, you can still apply as long as you are still considered a NM resident. You may also apply if you are originally from out of state, but are studying here in NM, AND are now considered a NM resident.
