Nevada Scholarships

The largely desert state of Nevada joined the Union in 1864. This momentous event took place during the Civil War, earning Nevada the nickname of the Battle Born State. Among much else, Nevada is known for its libertarian approach to laws and societal regulations. 

Nevada has nearly 30 institutions of higher learning in its college and university system. These include the University of Nevada, Nevada State College, Sierra Nevada College and Great Basin College. Community colleges, such as Truckee Meadows Community College, help round out the college offerings. 

State scholarships are awarded based on a number of factors. Financial need awards are given as are scholarships based on merit or academic achievement. The state also distributes money for those studying in under-served vocational areas such as nursing and education.  Private scholarship funds are available for degree candidates studying in fields ranging from media studies to zoology.
