We want to ensure Nevada’s best scholars stay in Nevada. The Governor Guinn Millennium Scholarship awards up to $10,000 in tuition to our state’s brightest students who decide to attend college here in Nevada. The Scholarship allows qualified students an opportunity to save a significant amount of money by simply going to school at an in-state college or university. If you’re a high-achieving student with a desire to attend college, this is an opportunity that is too good to pass up!
Traditional students graduating from a public, private, or charter high school in the state of Nevada must meet the following requirements to qualify for the scholarship:
There is no application process for students graduating from a traditional high school in Nevada. If you are eligible, your high school or school district will submit your name to our office and we will send you a notification by mail in July or August following your high school graduation.
For students that are home schooled or attend a high school out-of-state while residing in Nevada, there is an application process. These applications can be found under forms and documents and must be submitted with all corresponding documentation to be processed.
