Nevada Promise Scholarship Opportunities

Need more money for college? Hoping to attend WNC after high school graduation? The Nevada State Legislature provides Nevada high school seniors the opportunity to meet their goals. The legislature has funding available through the Nevada Promise Scholarship program to cover tuition and other mandatory fees not met by other federal or state programs. The scholarship can provide more than $3,000 per year for up to three years for students who apply and follow through with the requirements for receiving the scholarship.

Nevada Promise is open to Nevada high school students graduating between August 1 and June 15 who begin classes at WNC in the fall immediately following graduation. Applicants must be classified as a resident of Nevada for tuition purposes and must have earned a high school diploma from a private or public high school located in Nevada, or a public high school that is located in a county that borders the state and accepts pupils who are residents of this state. Students may also qualify if they earn their general equivalency diploma (GED or HSE) before the age of 20.

The scholarship does not mandate any income or high school GPA requirements.

Other requirements to receive the scholarship are completing a training session, applying for FAFSA, following up with the Financial Assistance Office with requested documentation, fulfilling community service obligations, meeting with your mentor, taking a placement test, attending new student orientation, and registering for at least 12 units of classes.

Nevada high school students graduating in spring 2023 must apply for the Nevada Promise Scholarship no later than October 31, 2022, to receive this funding to help further their education.

WNC is committed to helping applicants fulfill the requirements to maintain eligibility. Students who apply for the scholarship are encouraged to participate in the Bridge to Success program and apply for scholarship funding through the WNC Foundation no later than April 1.
