What They Do
NMSU Pioneers are University retirees or employees (and their spouses) who have worked at NMSU at least 20 years. The NMSU Pioneers were founded in 1984 by NMSU President Emeritus Gerald Thomas and others. Pioneers capitalize on the experience of former employees and support the NMSU mission of "teaching, research and service" by providing a community of colleagues for members, preservation of history and help to promote top quality education and excellence at NMSU.

NMSU Pioneers Book Scholarship
Since 1984, the NMSU Pioneers have focused on awarding scholarships, and in 1995, the NMSU Pioneers funded a current use scholarship to provide book scholarships to students at NMSU. With dedicated board leadership, generous donors and administrative support by the NMSU Foundation, the program has grown to support multiple book scholarships annually.
In recent years, the Board decided to honor past leaders of the NMSU Pioneers who have recently passed away. This tradition continues and scholarship recipients have the opportunity to meet with the Pioneers as well as the families of honored board members at the luncheons and other special events.
Your gift to the Pioneer Book Scholarship will make an impact on NMSU students. The financial cost of books continues to be significant, and an award of $1,000 can assure students are able to purchase the textbooks they need to succeed.
