Teach Nevada Scholarship Information

The College of Education has received $648,000 in scholarship funds for 7 Traditional Undergraduate and 20 ARL spots. The funding is for individuals beginning programs in fall 2017. This is the third round of Teach Nevada Scholarships that UNLV has received funding.

Part of the College's success in securing these funds was the ability to get quality candidates quickly into classrooms that need them most - with about 20 program routes to teacher licensure available to students of various educational backgrounds and life circumstances.

The College of Education was well poised to receive a significant amount of funding as both a traditional teacher preparation and ARL program provider. In addition, the accessibility of the College's programs can meet the needs of designated priority groups: towards military members and their spouses, those wanting to teach in areas in which there is a critical teacher shortage, and those who are economically disadvantaged or a member of a racial or ethnic minority group. Candidates who are selected will teach five years in a Nevada school that will appear on the high vacancy list (as posted at time of award).

Application Deadline: July 24, 2017 at 5PM
