Scholarships are automatically awarded to new freshmen admitted to the university by February 1 of the year preceding their fall enrollment. Awards will be based on official high school transcripts received at the original admission date and test scores received in the Office of Admissions and Records prior to February 1st. The academic index is calculated using the unweighted high school grade point average and the college entrance test score (ACT or SAT I).
The priority admissions deadline for scholarship awards is February 1st. After that date "new admit" scholarships are awarded only if funds are available. This includes spring admits. The minimum cutoffs may be subject to change pending availability of funding.
Students may receive only one of the following general university scholarships, including the National Merit Scholarship.
The scholarship awards $5,000 per year for four years of undergraduate study to new freshmen entering the semester immediately following high school graduation. This $20,000 scholarship is awarded to qualified entering freshmen who possess the following academic credentials:
This scholarship may be awarded from several different donor funds totaling $5,000 annually
The Silver & Blue scholarship level provides $2,500 for the academic year for students with an academic index of 90 and above.
$1,500 for the academic year with an index of 89-80.
$1,000 for the academic year with an index of 79-73. Entering freshmen students must have a minimum 3.00 cumulative unweighted high school GPA to qualify.
These scholarships may be awarded from several different donor funds totaling $2,500, $1,500 or $1,000 annually. Renewal, based on UNR GPA, may occur for one year only and requires that the annual scholarship application be completed in MyNEVADA prior to Feb. 1.
