Nevada Promise Graphic
The Nevada Promise Scholarship aims to make a college education more accessible and affordable. The scholarship enables Nevada residents, under the age of 20, to pursue a tuition-free degree at CSN beginning in Fall 2018.

The scholarship was established in 2017 during the 79th session of the Nevada Legislature. Beginning with the graduating class of 2018, high school seniors in Nevada may apply for the Nevada Promise Scholarship at CSN. For eligible students, the scholarship will provide for up to three years of tuition and other mandatory fees at no cost.

The Nevada Promise Scholarship is a last-dollar scholarship, meaning it will cover costs of these fees that are not met by other gift aid. For the purposes of the Nevada Promise Scholarship, gift aid is defined as Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Governor Guinn Millennium Scholarship or Silver State Opportunity Grant.
