Grantwell at UNLV is a student led, faculty advised grant allocation training program that provides public administration and nonprofit management graduate students with practical skills and leadership opportunities. Grantwell started at Brigham Young University in 2008 and has since expanded to UNLV in 2013. The model of Grantwell was inspired by a student-led giving program at the University of Mary Washington in which students each semester award $10,000 to a nonprofit organization following a rigorous assessment process.

Grantwell is a graduate level course provided by the UNLV School of Public Policy and Leadership. Students enrolled in Grantwell gain competencies in grant evaluation and organizational behavior. With a board of directors and executive team composed of students, Grantwell gives students the opportunity to take on leadership roles, gain practical experience and build connections within the local nonprofit community.
