- Scholarship Description
The Kenny C. Guinn Memorial Scholarship may be awarded to four students each year that are majoring in elementary or secondary education with the intent of teaching in Nevada and who meet the following criteria: be entering their senior year at an eligible institution (University of Nevada, Reno; University of Nevada Las Vegas; Great Basin College; Nevada State College; Western Governor's University; or Touro University); have a declared major in elementary or secondary education; have a 3.5 GPA; have a record of community service; and be committed to teaching in Nevada upon graduation.
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 Memorial Millennium trust fund is used to bestow scholarships to four qualified Governor Guinn Millennium Scholars each year, two in northern Nevada and two in southern Nevada, who are majoring in elementary or secondary education with the intent of teaching in Nevada. While the Memorial Scholarship directly serves award recipients, the scholarship also serves Nevada by keeping our best and brightest future educators in State.
