Now is the time for Nevada high school seniors to apply for the Nevada Promise Scholarship.

High school students who will graduate from a Nevada high school in spring 2020 and who plan to attend Western Nevada College in fall 2020, need to apply for the scholarship no later than October 31, 2019, to take advantage of this amazing scholarship opportunity.

To apply for the scholarship, go to


Nevada Promise is a scholarship program for Nevada high school graduates and High School Equivalency recipients younger than 20 who haven’t earned an associate or bachelor’s degree. This state-funded scholarship pays for class fees at WNC, or any other Nevada community college, that isn’t otherwise funded by the Pell Grant, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, the Millennium Scholarship or the Silver State Opportunity Grant.

The scholarship has saved Nevada families more than $3,000 per year, and more than 200 students are currently attending WNC through this scholarship. Students interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree can use the scholarship to complete their first two years at WNC before transferring to a university. They may also earn an associate degree and industry credentials in a variety of career and technical programs.

WNC will work closely with applicants to assist them with the scholarship requirements, as well as the admissions and financial aid processes. Scholarship requirements include mentorship and volunteer work.
