Nevada Scholarships

With cities like Reno and Las Vegas, known for their unique entertainment opportunities, tourism forms the foundation of Nevada’s economy. Of course, residents know that there’s much more to [Nevada than its two largest cities. Majestic mountain ranges, beautiful woodlands and wide-open scenery are the heart of the Silver State.

Nevada’s higher education aims to preserve this natural beauty. The Desert Research Institute is a hub of environmental research, and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas features academic programs in Geoscience, Water Resources Management and more.

Studying in this environmentally unique state is a one-of-a-kind experience. In order to do so, however, you may need to find some financial aid. Nevada scholarships are a great place to start, with several opportunities to suit a variety of needs.

Popular Nevada Scholarships

The Nevada Students Incentive Grant is a very popular Nevada scholarship. Funded by the Nevada Department of Education, this award is reserved for Nevada residents who demonstrate financial need. An average of 450 students receive this $5,000 award per year, out of about 19,000 applicants.

The Nevada Women’s Fund Scholarship is another great opportunity for in-state students. This scholarship gives preference to students at the University of Nevada and the Community College System in Northern Nevada.

Applying for Nevada Scholarships

Most Nevada scholarships require in-state residency, and some have even more specific requirements. The aforementioned Women’s Fund Scholarship, for example, only considers women who are residents of northern Nevada.

If you’re looking for additional Nevada scholarships to apply for, be sure to look into regional programs, such as the Western Undergraduate Exchange Scholarship. These programs have a broader applicant field, but you may be able to find more opportunities suited to your skills and interests.
