CSN Foundation Scholarship Information

CSN Foundation scholarships have been made possible through the generosity of community donors committed to supporting CSN student success. Every scholarship lowers or eliminates education debt students carry. Our mission is to graduate students debt-free through philanthropy.

Each scholarship has been thoughtfully created according to the wishes of the donors and includes a set of criteria that needs to be met by the student to be awarded. Some CSN Foundation scholarship awards are disbursed through Financial Aid and do not require an application. However, a handful of our scholarships require students to apply and submit an essay via our single application.

The deadline to apply for scholarships for the 2024-2025 academic year was February 15, 2024.

To learn more about these two processes please visit the following pages:

The Nevada System of Higher Education is guided by the principle that there shall be no difference in the treatment of persons because of race, religion, color, age, sex, disability, or national origin, and that equal opportunity and access to facilities shall be available to all.
