Scholarship Winners

Greater Nevada Credit Union Awards $41,000 in Scholarships 

For 18 years Greater Nevada has been awarding scholarships to help students further their education. This year we received 96 applications and we're happy to announce the 20 individuals who were each awarded a $2,000 scholarship and one student who is being awarded $1,000 for the 2017-2018 school year. . 

The scholarships were awarded on a competitive basis and winners were selected based on their financial need, academic performance, personal statement, recommendations from school and community leaders, and community involvement. The scholarships may be used for tuition, course registration, special class or laboratory fees, room and board, textbooks and class materials. In addition to the 20 recipients, four 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 2017-2018 school year. 

Congratulations to this year's scholarship recipients:
