Next Steps & Scholarship Acceptance

The college scholarship committees begin the award process for the next academic year in March and first-round awarding completed by May 31, 2021. Applicants will be notified whether or not they were awarded a scholarship via their Rebelmail email after awarding is completed.  Please do not reach out to check on your award status prior to this date. If there are updates or delays in the awarding process we will send out an email to all applicants.

Scholarship recipients will receive an award letter via email from the Dean and Scholarship Coordinator indicating the following:

  • Scholarship name and award amount.
  • Requirements for maintain the scholarship for the upcoming academic year.
  • Scholarship criterion that students must verify they meet to be eligible for scholarship disbursement in August.

In addition, scholarship recipients must go to the following link and fill out the required information and upload a thank you letter to accept the award.

Failure to submit these forms by the deadline on the award letter will result in the award being canceled and the funds offered to another student.

Once all information is received, the monetary award will be applied to your UNLV student account by the start of the fall and spring semesters. It is the responsibility of the recipient to ensure their student account charges are paid by university deadlines in case there are any delays in awards being disbursed. Questions can be directed to the email.
