Scholarships from Colleges
Many colleges and departments have scholarships to award and these funds are the primary source of scholarships for students in their third year of study and beyond. To be eligible for these scholarships students must complete the Graduate and Undergraduate Scholarship Application located in the Supplemental Forms area of MyNEVADA annually beginning in October. For the best chance of success, consider these scholarship essay writing tips. February 1 is the priority deadline for completing both this application and the FAFSA (fafsa.ed.gov). The Late Graduate and Undergraduate Scholarship Application is open annually in MyNEVADA Supplemental Forms through May 31 for students who did not complete the application by the priority deadline. In addition, students need to complete any supplemental scholarship application required by areas aligned with their interests, majors, and minors. Those areas which have shared with our office that they have a supplemental scholarship application are listed below. Department and college application deadlines vary.
- College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources Research Scholarships
- Community Health Sciences
- Engineering CREATE Program
- English (New application available beginning each February)
- Funded Undergraduate Research Opportunities
- Sanford Center for Aging
- Social Work
