The Las Cruces Museum System, in memory of William Wachtel, offers a limited number of scholarships for children, teens, and adults to participate in classes at the museums. Scholarships apply to classes at each museum, including art programs, science camps, summer camp and history/cultural workshops. Scholarships are intended to provide financial assistance to individuals interested in museum classes, and, if awarded, the scholarship covers 100% of the class tuition and required supplies. Awardees are solely responsible for meeting class registration deadlines. Sponsored by the Foundation for Las Cruces Museums.
