Kenny C. Guinn Memorial Scholarship Application Deadline Extended

The Kenny C. Guinn Memorial Scholarship application deadline has been extended to April 30, 2023!

As most of you know, in 2011, the Nevada Legislature unanimously approved, and Governor Sandoval signed into law Senate Bill 220, establishing the Kenny C. Guinn Memorial Millennium Scholarship. The trust fund is used to bestow additional scholarships each year to two qualified Governor Guinn Millennium Scholars, one each in Northern and Southern Nevada, who are majoring in elementary or secondary education with the intent of teaching in Nevada. In 2019 the Nevada Legislature increased the award amount from $4,500 to $5,000, increased the number of awards from 2 to 4, and opened up the competition to non-NSHE institutions.

This scholarship is a substantial additional award of up to $5,000 above the standard Millennium Scholarship.

Full details are included in the attachment, but eligibility requirements include:

  1. Must have satisfied the eligibility requirements of the Governor Guinn Millennium Scholarship pursuant to NRS 396.930.
  2. Entering senior year of program in 2023-24
  3. Enrolled in a course of study leading to licensure in elementary or secondary education
  4. 3.5 GPA or higher
  5. Commitment to teaching in Nevada
  6. Record of community service
