The Webinar includes an overview of the scholarship and a Q&A

Q: How long are the Santa Fe and Las Cruces Trainings?

A: The trainings are 8am-5pm.

Q: Are we expected to attend the training sessions closest to us geographically?

A: You do not have to attend the one that is closest to you, although that may be most convenient. You need to attend whichever one you are able to attend. If you are accepted, you will be notified this year and in the application process you would identify which date you plan on attending.

Q: What is the childcare stipend maximum allowable amount?

A: $175

Q: How soon are you able to receive the book if you have accepted the scholarship?

A: The trainees provide the book the first day of training. Your book cost would be covered so you wouldn’t have to pay out of pocket.

Q: How does registering for the exam work?

A: Awardees receive an award letter to review and sign; once we receive the letters and names of attendees, we will give the list of attendees to organization that does the trainings and their organization will submit all of the exam paperwork and make sure all exam materials are ready for attendees.

Q: Who do we contact with questions?

A: Please reach out to NMBTF at with any questions

You don’t have to be a NMBTF member to apply for this scholarship, and we will support you in this process so you don’t have to do it alone.
