Scholarships and Awards

The Office of Service Learning and Leadership (SLL) is proud to offer 16 - $500 scholarships to students during the fall and spring semesters (eight are offered each semester; no more than two graduate students will receive the scholarship each semester). It is our hope that these scholarships will support SLL's vision that "every UNLV student is an engaged community member, reflective lifelong learner, and social justice agent." In order to receive the scholarship, students must have a 2.75 cumulative GPA upon time of disbursement. There must be a full academic year before an individual can receive the scholarship again (i.e. if you received the scholarship during the 2018-2019 academic year, you are ineligible to receive the scholarship during the 2019-2020 academic year).

  • The Engelstad Scholarship Program provides a scholarship award of up to $5,000 annually in two $2,500 installments each fall and spring semester. The scholarship is renewable for three years (for a total of four years) for students who maintain the award criteria.

  • The UNLV HOPE Scholars Program is a partnership between the Clark County School District Title I HOPE Program, Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY), and UNLV.

  • UNLV Impact Awards seeks to recognize individual students, groups of students, and student organizations whose leadership and service advances learning, justice, and social change within the community.

  • This certificate program recognizes the impact UNLV students, faculty, staff, and organizations have in the community through direct service.
