Thank you for visiting this scholarship guide.
The guide is intended to provide reliable information for current and prospective college students who are seeking financial assistance. "External" sources of funding for college are emphasized, which may be of particular use to students who are currently ineligible for U.S. federal financial aid for any reason.
Where to look for funding options, including grants, scholarships, and loans.
UNLV offers additional support to students with financial needs, including the Hope Scholars Program for on campus housing, the UNLV Cares food pantry, and additional emergency assistance for students ( Emergency Loans ) and (Graduate Access Emergency Retention Grants). Individual colleges and schools may also offer assistance, see this Supporting our Students fund from the College of Education as an example.
