Scholarship Winners

Greater Nevada Credit Union Awards $56,000 in Scholarships 

Since 1999 Greater Nevada Credit Union (GNCU) has awarded more than $320,000 in scholarships. This year GNCU received 108 scholarship applications, and 28 students were selected to receive $2,000 each for the 2018-2019 school year.

The scholarship program, sponsored and administered annually by the credit union, is available to Greater Nevada members and their families. Scholarships are awarded based on each applicant’s financial need, academic performance, community involvement, and educational and career goals. The scholarships can be used for tuition, course registration, special classes or laboratory fees, room and board, textbooks and class materials. In addition to the 28 recipients, five alternates were named in the event that one or more of the winners is unable to enroll and attend school on a full-time basis during the 2018-2019 school year.

Congratulations to this year's scholarship recipients:
