Your investment in graduate education is an investment in the future.
This year with the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic uncertainty, financial support is more important than ever to our graduate students, and the following funds make an impact for students during this challenging time:
- Many UNLV graduate students continue to experience hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic uncertainty. This fund provides Emergency Retention Awards to students with emergency financial need. We have seen a large increase in applications due to COVID-19, and we expect these needs to continue. Make a gift to the Graduate Student Emergency Support Fund to support students who need short-term support to meet their needs and stay in school.
- Graduate Student Scholarships help offset the cost of education for students and, particularly at this challenging time, can make the difference for students considering graduate school at UNLV.
- The Grad Academy provides comprehensive leadership, career, and professional development opportunities to prospective and current graduate and professional students. The Academy houses certifications, programs, and workshops that are serving students in their development as well as providing content on how to be successful in the changed world.
- Empower the Graduate College with a gift to the Dean’s Fund for Excellence to address evolving student support and professional development program needs to support our students’ success and our Top Tier goals, particularly during this time of change and transition.
