The Jon Cobain Lee Business School Matching Gift was created to support high-achieving first-generation college students at LEE by helping them graduate on time and preparing them to professionally and personally make a positive impact in the business world and in their communities.
Jon Cobain has made a generous pledge of up to $2.3 million in matching funds to support first-generation scholarships, student research, and professional development. A first-generation scholar himself and UNLV’s first graduate, Cobain will match dollar-for-dollar all gifts that meet the criteria made by Nov. 30, 2022.
Matched gifts will support the three funds:
Cobain First Generation Business Scholar Endowment Fund
Scholarships will be awarded to first-generation college students as a merit-based scholarship open to UNLV business majors. To qualify, students must submit a FAFSA and have a cumulative high school grade point average of 3.75 or higher and maintain a 3.5 or higher grade point average while at UNLV. Students must be first generation to qualify and preference will be given to full-time students.
