NMC Supports J. Robert Oppenheimer Scholarship for Local Students

The New Mexico Consortium is a proud supporter of the J. Robert Oppenheimer Memorial Committee (JROMC) scholarships.  This scholarship is awarded to high school seniors at Los Alamos, Pojoaque Valley, Santa Fe and Capital High Schools based on merit and to recognize a variety of achievements.

The JROMC is dedicated to preserving the legacy of Robert Oppenheimer, the first director of Los Alamos National Laboratory and one of the most influential scientists of the 20th Century. They first awarded the JROMC scholarship to a Los Alamos graduating senior in 1984, and since then over 235 scholarships and other awards have been granted totaling more than $630,000

This scholarship program is supported by several limited term endowments, individual donations, and major contributions from the New Mexico Consortium, the Delle Foundation, and The Los Alamos High School Class of 1969.
