The University of Nevada, Reno provides its staff and faculty access to reduced-rate educational opportunities. The purpose of educational benefits is to provide staff the opportunity for continued professional growth and new or renewed intellectual achievement. This may be accomplished through study leading to completion of a degree, whether associate, undergraduate, graduate or Ph.D., so that career effectiveness may be enhanced, occupational usefulness increased and the University’s personnel skills strengthened. The program requires a commitment from both the employee and the University to be effective.

Grants-in-Aid Forms and Information

*For Faculty completing the GIA Online Application for their dependents above the age of 24 who have served on Active Duty in the USAF, please contact UNR HR for a workaround to the systematic limitation of citing dependents who are only below 24 years of age.
*Students who are Graduate Assistants cannot apply nor receive  Grant-In-Aid, as they are assisted through the Graduate Assistantship waiver.
