Room 352


The Grad Rebel Advantage program provides annual cohorts of UNLV undergraduate students with mentorship, workshops, and professional development opportunities designed to build their base of knowledge about educational options after the bachelor’s degree and prepare them for graduate study. The program will select 60 students to participate in the inaugural cohort in academic year 2018-2019, and 100 undergraduates per year after that. Each Grad Rebel Advantage participant will be expected to participate in a number of workshops and activities throughout the year, and they will each receive a $800 scholarship to help pay for the time that they spend in the program and reward their full participation. The Grad Rebel Advantage Program will help prepare UNLV undergraduate student participants for graduate studies, whether at UNLV or elsewhere.

Acceptance in the Grad Rebel Advantage Program is competitive. Complete applications, including a faculty/advisor endorsement, must be submitted by Monday, April 8, 2019.
