Scholarship Programs

We believe in supporting the communities we serve. Our Trust & Wealth Management Group administers two scholarship programs, founded by local benefactors, which grant over $50,000 in scholarships annually for the benefit of local high school graduates.

Berliner Foundation Scholarship

The Mary Anne Berliner Foundation was established in the spring of 2000. Its purpose is to provide grants to individuals who are residents of southeastern New Mexico for study at the post-secondary level. Mrs. Mary Anne Berliner funded the Foundation from her estate after she passed away in April 1999. Mrs. Berliner was a long-time Artesia resident who led a very interesting life. She lived overseas during the 1960's with her husband, Mr. Fritz Berliner, who was a U.S. diplomat. During their years in the U.S. government, they lived in many countries, including Russia, Thailand, Austria and Hungary. Her wish was to benefit as many young women and men from southeastern New Mexico as possible by providing educational grants.

Monroe Scholarship Trust

The Irving L. and Elizabeth M. Monroe Scholarship Trust was established under the Last Will and Testament of Elizabeth Monroe. Mrs. Monroe directed that the Superintendent of the Roswell Independent School District and the Trustee, First American Bank select a deserving male and female student who graduates from a Roswell High School, from low or moderate income families who would not otherwise be able to attend college.

The cost of the education of both students will be paid from the Monroe Trust. The funds shall be paid with the understanding that when the students finish their educations they should make an effort to repay the trust funds given them, without interest, but repayment is not obligatory and shall not be a condition to the advancement of such funds.
