Greater Nevada is committed to helping our members achieve their goals. As a part of this endeavor, this year we are awarding twenty $2,000 scholarships to students within our membership. 

  • Twenty $2,000 scholarships will be available to applicants who are a Greater Nevada member, or the child, spouse, or parent of a Greater Nevada member.
  • Selection criteria will be based primarily on the financial need of the applicant. Additional criteria will include: Academic performance, school and community involvement, and written recommendations from school and community leaders.
  • Applicants are not limited to attending Nevada schools.
  • Successful applicants will be limited to receiving only one scholarship, and recipients will not be eligible for this program in subsequent years.
  • Scholarship recipients must attend school as a full-time student during the 2017/2018 school year.
  • Scholarship funds will be paid in two $1,000 installments (Fall & Spring), directly to the school of the recipient's choice.
