Nevada Opportunity Scholarships
A Parent/Guardian wishing to apply for an Opportunity Scholarship (formerly known as the Education Choice Scholarship) needs to submit an application with any State of Nevada qualified Scholarship Grant Organization (SGO). We encourage you to apply to all the organizations because if one runs out of funds before your child is awarded a scholarship another may still have funds available. The SGOs listed below are for students anywhere in the state of Nevada. There is a $25.00 application fee per organization. The student must also be a member of a household that has a household income within 300% of the federally designated poverty level.
Be sure to check each scholarship awarding entity for dates they will begin accepting scholarship applications and closing dates. This will ensure that you submit your paperwork on time. These scholarships are granted on a first come first serve basis.
