The Nevada Promise Scholarship is a hit with southern Nevada’s high school seniors. Now it’s time for community members to come together and help the students through college by becoming mentors. CSN received 9,157 applications from Nevada high school students for the scholarship, a new, state- funded program that will pay all mandatory tuition and fees for those who qualify once other forms of financial aid are exhausted. Students who receive the scholarship must meet several requirements, including performing community service and meeting with a mentor. In all, students from 105 high schools across the state applied.
