Scholarship Name: Community Foundation of Northern Nevada Scholarship Program
Agency: Community Foundation of Northern Nevada

The Community Foundation of Northern Nevada’s Scholarship Program is intended to help students cover the ever-increasing cost of tuition. Some of our scholarships are based on financial need, but others represent an award for achievement. These scholarships typically go to students who have excelled in an academic area or have shown they can balance academics, volunteer work, and extracurricular activities. There are also scholarships designated for students who have overcome adversity, students pursuing degrees in high-need areas, and adult learners outside the traditional college age group. Community Foundation scholarships can help cover tuition, books, and on-campus housing. It's never too early to start preparing for scholarship applications. Check out our scholarship tips, scholarship FAQs, and other resources.
