About

CSUN offers a variety of services to undergraduate students attending UNLV, including nine different scholarships and four grants with varying criteria. CSUN awards more than $100,000 annually in scholarships and grants each year to eligible undergraduate students.

CSUN Scholar Program

The CSUN Scholar Program was established by members of student government to recognize high-achieving undergraduates at UNLV. Recipients of the nine different CSUN scholarships are distinguished as “CSUN Scholars” and are admitted to the program, in which they are required to participate in university events throughout the school year. Scholars in this program are high achieving students with diverse backgrounds engaged in contributing to all aspects of the UNLV campus community

Scholarships

All scholarships must be submitted by Friday, March 24th for the Spring 2017 semester.

CSUN Undergraduate Research Stipend

The CSUN Undergraduate Research Stipend was created for the purpose of supporting students who display research ability and potential by providing financial support while they actively engage in a research project. A primary function of this scholarship is to reduce financial barriers that students may face while completing undergraduate research activities by decreasing the need for outside employment.

Under this scholarship, six (6) undergraduate students will be awarded funding: 3 recipients from non-STEM fields (e.g., social sciences, fine arts, and humanities), and 3 recipients from STEM fields. Eligible students that complete the application will be considered to receive a scholarship of $5,000 per academic year, to be disbursed in two $2,500 increments during two semesters of the recipient’s choosing (fall and spring, fall and summer, or spring and summer terms). Recipients of the CSUN Undergraduate Research Stipend are required to continuously report on their research progress throughout the award term by presenting at one or more of the UNLV undergraduate research forums (fall, spring, and summer term), and by submitting a midterm progress report, verified by their faculty research mentor, to the Office of Undergraduate Research.
