Derby Day is our primary source of funds to support:

    • Annual Reading Rally at a Title 1 elementary school in Albuquerque: All second grade students may choose a new hardcover book to take home, as well as a bag of school supplies.
  • Scholarships at UNM and CNM
    • CNM: EWI Albuquerque awards $1,000 each year in ASIST (Adult Students in Scholastic Transition) scholarships to CNM students.
    • UNM: EWI Albuquerque funds an annual scholarship for a female graduate student who is preparing to advance her current career, change careers, or reenter the workforce.
