Hixson-Lied Success Scholarship

Thousands of students across Nevada may never have the opportunity to earn a college degree primarily because of economic and academic challenges, and there are very few programs in place to help these students. The UNLV Hixson-Lied Success Scholars Program helps make a difference in the lives of these students by providing both financial and academic support through the Academic Success Center (ASC). The Hixson-Lied Success Scholars Program provides students:

  • A scholarship in the amount of $2,304 per semester ($4,608 per year) for up to eight semesters.
  • Academic Success Coaching sessions.
  • The ability to make a difference through serving peers and giving back to UNLV.
  • Access to the Hixson-Lied Success Scholars Newsletter, a monthly newsletter created by the scholars.
