The Nevada State Education Association (NSEA), in partnership with elected leaders and community members, is pleased to offer scholarships in the amount of $5,000 to those applicants who are selected. The NSEA supports students pursuing a degree in education and highly encourages these students to apply. However, NSEA supports all education, so the application process is not limited to education students.

Candidates must be enrolled or enrolling in a Nevada accredited community college, 4-year university, or career technology institution.
