Scholarship Award Renewal

Nevada Promise Scholarship

Who Qualifies for a Nevada Promise Scholarship Renewal?

To qualify for a Nevada Promise Scholarship renewal, you must:

  • Meet all 2019-2020 eligibility requirements.  Students who failed to meet any 2019-2020 eligibility requirements are not eligible for renewal.
  • Meet all program requirements and deadlines.
  • Be enrolled in at least 12 eligible semester credits hours in an associate degree program, or a certificate of achievement program eligible for financial aid at CSN for each fall and spring semester unless you are scheduled to graduate and have notified the Nevada Promise Scholarship Office via email.
  • Meet Satisfactory Academic Progress as defined by CSN’s Financial Aid Office.

And you must not:

  • Have earned a prior associate or bachelor’s degree.

As a friendly reminder, the Nevada Promise Scholarship is a last dollar scholarship and will only cover remaining eligible fees after gift aid has been applied.  Gift aid, in this case, is defined as the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant, Silver State Opportunity Grant or Governor Guinn Millenniu Scholarship.
