Giving Matters

UNLV students are facing unexpected hardships due to COVID-19 and the necessary community response. Many have lost their jobs and cannot afford basic needs like food or housing. In this time of uncertainty, if you are able to make a gift, please know how much your support matters.

The scholarship took away a lot of stress of being a new dad and helped me focus more on school. I really don’t know how to express how grateful I am. I want to be a great physical therapist so that I can make a difference in other people’s lives.
