Notable: College of Education Kitty Rodman Scholars

Fourteen students (all Education) will benefit next academic year from the Kitty Rodman Scholarship. The scholarship program was established in 2014 with the College of Education and was designated to support scholarships and graduate fellowships for UNLV students pursing careers in special education.

The specially designed program includes students completing 67 credits in a single academic year; all tuition and fees covered by the scholarship.
