Great Basin College is officially participating in the Nevada Promise Scholarship, established by the Nevada Legislature in 2017. Beginning with the graduating class of 2018, Nevada students may apply for the Nevada Promise Scholarship at 澳门新甫京娱乐游戏在线下载, which will provide for up to three years of coverage of registration fees and other mandatory fees to eligible students.

As a last-dollar scholarship, the Nevada Promise Scholarship covers the cost of registration fees and other mandatory fees (tuition is not charged to residents of Nevada) not met by other gift aid, subject to appropriation. For the purposes of the Nevada Promise Scholarship, gift aid is defined as a federal Pell Grant, a federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, a Nevada Silver State Opportunity Grant or a Governor Guinn Millennium Scholarship.

    • First, students who have received the award in previous academic years, on a first-come, first-served basis, based on the FAFSA completion date.
