Community2Campus - Scholarships

Community2Campus administers several scholarships earmarked especially for UNLV re-entry students returning to higher education after an extended interruption in education due to family commitments, military service, finances, or other reasons.

Community2Campus works in concert with the Adult Learner Advisory Board to evaluate applications for scholarships and select recipients for the awards. The scholarships range between $500 to $5000, annually. 

Scholarships and Eligibility Requirements

There are specific scholarship eligibility requirements indicated for each scholarship.  The scholarships listed are made available by the generous support of various donors.  To apply for a specific Re-entry Scholarship, students must meet all of the scholarship requirements.  Applicants for all scholarships must be formally admitted to UNLV as a degree seeking student to be considered for an award.
