Scholarship Name: Nevada Women's Fund Scholarships
Agency: Nevada Women's Fund

Scholarships are awarded directly to the recipient and our philosophy is to continue to allocate scholarships to deserving women (given that need and academic performance continue to be proven) until she achieves her degree. Many scholarship donors set separate criteria including age, major, and school attending. Applications must include an upload of a government-issued ID indicating an address in Northern Nevada (i.e., not Clark County); FAFSA SAR Report, and most recent transcript. All eligible applications are reviewed and scored by the Nevada Women's Fund Allocations Committee. Scholarship Awards are announced in June of each year.


Must be a woman from Northern Nevada going to school in Northern Nevada.
Must have a 3.0 unweighted GPA. Scholarship applications are scored based on academic achievements, personal story and background, and financial need.
