Nevada Promise is a scholarship and mentoring program that makes college more accessible to students in the state. Many high school seniors have applied for the scholarship and it is important that they continue to take the necessary steps to earn the scholarship.
Through funding from the Nevada State Legislature, the state will pay for students’ fees and tuition from attending classes at Nevada community colleges that are not otherwise funded by federal aid, the Millennium Scholarship or the Silver State Opportunity Grant.
Applicants, however, must meet several obligations to maintain scholarship eligibility.
Paramount among these obligations is completing 20 hours of community service no later than April 30. Students can give their time at non-profit or public service organizations.
