A Grand in the Stands!

Jeffrey Adler wins a $1,000 scholarship at the Washington State basketball game.

Presented by the NMSU Foundation, Inc., "A Grand in the Stands!" is a $1,000 scholarship giveaway to seven lucky Aggies over the course of the 2018-19 NM State Basketball season.

To register, simply show up to the selected basketball game and swipe your Aggie ID at the "A Grand in the Stands!" registration table on the south side of the Concourse (just behind the student section entrance). Your name will be entered into the giant spinning wheel. Then, stay in your seat - at the start of halftime, one lucky Aggie's name and the last four digits of their Aggie ID will be drawn and announced.

If your name is called, you get to run down onto the court to accept your big check - a $1,000 scholarship toward Spring tuition.
