Joylynn Martinez wants to show her Pojoaque community that she can lead. In 20 years, she expects to give back to her native state by developing her own brand of pediatric prosthetics. She said that she comes from a small community made up of mostly minority students who don’t often get a shot at a college scholarship, work internships, and leadership opportunities that in turn lead to a job.

Which is why the New Mexico Leadership Institute $25,000 scholarship — and the wraparound services that it provides — mean so much to her. She’s already started an internship at Los Alamos National Laboratory as part of the program. She’s one of 29 New Mexico students to reap the benefits of this five-year program, which nurtures scholarship recipients before, during, and after their college years to encourage them to remain in New Mexico and become leaders in any field they pursue.
