Since its creation, the Guinn Millennium Scholarship has given thousands of Nevadans access to quality higher education and more than doubled the number of students who now attend Nevada’s colleges and universities. To date, approximately $240 million has been distributed to more than 63,000 Guinn Millennium Scholars across Nevada. More than 22,000 degrees have been awarded to Millennium Scholars throughout the state and, as a result, Nevada has a stronger, more educated workforce to offer local businesses.
Specifically at UNLV, the program has greatly increased the size of our student body, leading to the enhancement of our faculty and expansion of our campus. On average, roughly 5,500 Millennium Scholars attend UNLV each semester. The Guinn Millennium Scholarship has left a profoundly positive mark on our state, giving Nevada’s best and brightest the incentive to pursue higher education in state and enrich our communities.
