NMS Sponsors Two J. Robert Oppenheimer Scholarships to Graduating Seniors

The NMC is proud to be sponsoring two J. Robert Oppenheimer scholarships this year. Since 1984, the J. Robert Oppenheimer Memorial  Committee administers multiple scholarships a year to further the memory and spirit of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the first director of  Los Alamos National Laboratory and one of the most influential scientists of the 20th century.
The $3,000 scholarship is available each year to Northern New Mexico graduating seniors attending Los Alamos, Pojoaque, Capitol, and Santa Fe public high schools. Scholarships are merit based and are awarded to students who are pursuing degrees in life sciences, computer sciences, physical sciences, mathematics and the arts.
One scholarship was given to Mathilde Jacobson, who just graduated from Los Alamos High School, and is interested in Molecular or Microbiology and plants to eventually get a PhD in Immunology. The second scholarship sponsored by the NMC was given to  Lawrence Mirabal, a high school senior from Santa Fe High School. These scholarships are given to students who shows exceptional promise of future contributions to society and plan to attend a New Mexico institution of higher education.   
The NMC presented these award at the Honors Convocation award ceremony on May 29th at 6pm in the Duane Smith Auditorium. Congratulations to these two commendable high school seniors.
