Find Your Scholarship

Applying for a Community Foundation scholarship has never been easier.

It all starts with the 2022 Scholarship Eligibility Quiz

Applications for the 2022 scholarship cycle are now open, as of January 15, 2022. Follow the application process below.

Complete this common Eligibility Quiz as a starting point. The software prompts you to provide all the information necessary. After completing the questions on the Quiz, you will have access to multiple scholarships that match your qualifications.  You will need to apply for each scholarship separately.

Applying to renew a Community Foundation scholarship?
You still need to complete the Eligibility Quiz. Upon completion, you will be taken to the appropriate renewal application.

Scholarships are available for students graduating high school, those in college or trade school, and medical school students, even 3 and 4-year-olds  have the opportunity to qualify for a year of preschool tuition. All Community Foundation scholarships are listed below with links to individual scholarship descriptions and information.

You probably have lots of questions. We have some answers. Email Lauren Renda, Philanthropic Advisor, at lrenda@nevadafund.org.
