The Gift of Scholarships

Your direct support of Honors College students through scholarships means more than you may realize. It’s more than money for tuition and books. Scholarships deliver a strong message to these remarkable young men and women: our community believes in you! With this belief and support, our students can accomplish astonishing things.

Backed by your investment, we will make the UNLV Honors College the first-choice institution for prospective students by offering them compelling scholarship support and, once they are here, funding study abroad programs, independent research projects, and academic conferences that deeply enrich their university experience.

What’s more – despite their exceptional abilities, the majority of our students come to us with demonstrated financial need; many are the first in their families to attend college. Your scholarship support opens doors for these students.

Establishing a Scholarship Fund

You can establish an annual scholarship with a minimum gift of $5,000 or an endowed scholarship with a minimum gift of $30,000 with cash, securities, real estate, or personal property.

For scholarship gifts of less than $5,000, your contribution will be pooled with the gifts of other donors in our General Scholarship Fund. These funds – awarded to the highest performing students each year – provide foundational support for Honors College students.
