Since the program’s inception in 2000, NV Energy has awarded nearly 900 scholarships to students statewide. These one-time scholarships of $1,000 can be used at any accredited university, college or trade school. Scholarship recipients will be invited to an award ceremony honoring scholarship recipients and their families.
