Western Nevada College has been deeply enriched by the generosity of many benefactors – people who have given time, talent and money. These investments have helped build a top quality college that is making positive differences in students’ lives. In doing so, communities are enriched as qualified individuals take their place in the workforce as engaged citizens.
The Western Nevada College Foundation, founded in 1992, assists in these efforts by raising funds in support of the college through employee giving, special events and campaigns, and individual, corporate, and private foundation solicitations.
Each year, WNC awards scholarships to students on the basis of academic criteria or any combination of academics, field of study, financial need, activities, community service, and other criteria. The General WNC Foundation Scholarship application for 2018/2019 is now open.
