The scholarship allows eligible students to attend a Nevada community college at virtually no cost
The College of Southern Nevada is urging this year’s Nevada high school seniors to apply for the Nevada Promise Scholarship before the October 31 deadline. It could mean an almost tuition-free college degree.
At CSN, the Nevada Promise Scholarship Program is serving 756 students this fall semester. Close to 1,600 students have applied for the scholarship to date.
Nevada Promise is a state-funded program that will pay tuition and mandatory fees that are not covered by other forms of financial aid for those who are eligible. This last-dollar scholarship is available to eligible participants for up to three years or through the completion of their program of study.
In addition to the financial benefits, students in the program are also assigned a mentor who can help guide them through college. The college has 273 program mentors, new and returning, who have provided more than 8,369 mentoring sessions to high school seniors and college students since 2017.
At CSN, Nevada Promise students have provided 138,276 hours of volunteer service to our Southern Nevada community. The top five organizations working with our students are Three Square, Opportunity Village, Springs Preserve, Project 150, and Spread the Word Nevada.
