There are several ways to receive financial aid to help pay for college tuition. Students commonly receive financial aid in the forms of grants, scholarships and loans. Although many means of financial aid are based on financial need, every student is encouraged to apply. In order to apply, students need to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
There are many scholarship opportunities available, some that are specific to the College of Education, and many that are general scholarships from the University. Below is a list of options for students to apply for these scholarships.
Students recently admitted to the University of Nevada, Reno, are automatically considered for scholarships offered throughout the University. These scholarships are awarded based on the student's qualifying credentials. Visit the University's Financial Aid website to find out more.
The General Scholarship Application for the following academic year is available each academic year during Fall Semester. All students are encouraged to apply. You can apply and find out more information by visiting the Aid By Student Type page on the University's Financial Aid website.
A limited amount of scholarship funding is available to students in their upper division course work in education programs. Students who will be in their internship semester are given priority, and award letters note the semester for which the award is available to correspond with the semester of internship.
