Every year, the NMSU Foundation hosts a fundraiser to support the University's premier scholarship for New Mexico students - the President's Associates Scholars. This fundraiser, the President's Associates Ball, alternates between either being a virtual ball or an in-person ball.

This year, the NMSU Foundation hosted a virtual ball April 22 through May 5, 2019, which included three mini dinners in Las Cruces as well as an online auction.

Because of donor support, 15 high-achieving and deserving high school students from New Mexico every year have the opportunity to attend NMSU with little to no financial burden.

In April 2018, the NMSU Foundation broke records with its in-person President's Associates Ball, raising more than $75,000 for student scholarships. To see who all made a difference, please visit this link.

When the event is in-person, it not only features food, drinks, live music, dancing and Aggie students but also offers many ways for attendees to support scholarships, including through a live and silent auction.
