UNLV Scholarships for New Freshmen
2022-2023 Merit-Based Scholarships
UNLV is currently re-evaluating our merit-based scholarship awarding process for the fall 2022 semester. As we update this process, please note that our priority deadline remains Nov. 15, 2021. Be sure to complete the FAFSA or Alternate Need Form and be admitted to UNLV by this date for priority consideration.
We look forward to sharing our revised merit-based scholarship awarding process with you soon!
Entering first-year students are automatically considered for scholarships based on admission to the university and the completion of a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Alternate Need Form.
The priority deadline for financial aid and scholarship consideration is Nov. 15. Students must have completed a FAFSA or Alternate Need Form and be admitted to UNLV by the Nov. 15 deadline to receive priority consideration for scholarship awards.
The Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships will notify students who receive a UNLV scholarship through MyUNLV.
