Do not complete this application if you do not intend to be a University student for the upcoming year.

Donors of College of Business scholarships require that you are full-time (12-15 credits undergraduate, 9 graduate). We will also assume that you will be enrolled in both the Fall and Spring semesters unless you tell us otherwise in your essay. If you are graduating in December, apply for graduation in MyNevada soon after April 1. You must also be a declared major in the College of Business to receive an award.

Honesty and personal integrity are key values of the University of Nevada community. The issue of academic integrity is taken very seriously at the University and the College of Business. Since the majority of students take pride in total academic integrity, it is hoped that you, as a student, will take action to influence the practice of integrity in the academic community. Students found to have cheated, will not be eligible for scholarships from the College of Business.
