Howard Stroup Scholarship Application

The Howard R. Stroup Scholarship will provide $500 tuition at New Mexico State University, for two consecutive semesters during the recipient’s freshman year.

Mr. Howard R. Stroup was a very active participant in the establishment and development of New Mexico State University’s Agriculture Science Center at Artesia. Howard was “the farmer” in the original group that got the station started. He provided the know-how for land leveling, the establishment of irrigation systems, and the acquisition of farm machinery. In recognition of Mr. Stoup’s efforts and services to the science center, this scholarship is presented annually to a freshman student majoring in any field of study involving agriculture or home economics, such as agronomy, horticulture, entomology, plant pathology, wildlife management, forestry, genetic engineering, experimental statistics, hotel/motel management, fashion design or human nutrition.
