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 $1,250 per semester ($2,500 per year) for up to eight semesters
- Enrollment in the Academic Success Center's Bridge programs
- Access to Academic Success coaching for weekly sessions
- The ability to make a difference through serving peers and giving back to UNLV
- Access to the Hixson-Lied Success Report, a monthly newsletter created by the scholars and for the scholars
