As a reminder, Nevada high school students graduating in spring 2023 must apply for the Nevada Promise Scholarship no later than Oct. 31, 2022, to receive this fortuitous pathway to higher education.
To apply or to learn more about the Nevada Promise Scholarship, which is offered at Western Nevada College, go to wnc.edu/promise/ and “Click to Apply!”.
Nevada’s State Legislature has provided scholarship funding to cover tuition and other mandatory fees not met by federal or state, amounting to a savings of more than $3,000 per year. The scholarship provides aid for up to three years for students who apply and follow through with the requirements for receiving the scholarship.
Nevada Promise is open to Nevada high school students graduating between Aug. 1 and June 15 who begin classes at WNC in the fall immediately following graduation. Applicants must be classified as a Nevada resident for tuition purposes and must have earned a high school diploma from a private or public high school located in Nevada, or a public high school that is located in a county that borders the state and accepts pupils who are residents of this state. Students may also qualify if they earn their general equivalency diploma (GED or HSE) prior to the age of 20.
There are no income or high school GPA requirements.
